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.

This is such beauty! ❤
Indeed. It was a precious moment. The Heron was kind enough to let me observe and take its photo.
Awesome image! You’ve captured all the detail beautifully!
Thanks, Sue. I don’t consider myself a nature photographer, so am thrilled when I capture a good image.
