Wading in the Shallows

On a mild winter’s day last year at Sandy Wool Lake, I watched a Great Blue Heron wade slowly in the shallows searching for small fish. As the Heron moved, I kept the same pace along the muddy shoreline. The Heron didn’t seem to mind my snapping photos of its hunt for a meal. The Heron has seen plenty of photographers, hikers, and fishermen poking around its habitat. None-the-less, it felt special to capture this mundane moment in the Heron’s life. Such a beautiful creature.
