Great Blue Heron and Snow

I ran across a Great Blue Heron resting among piles of snow at the Stu Visser Trails Natural Area in Holland, Michigan. The Great Blue Heron is one of my favorite birds to photograph. I caught this one at rest near some open water. Perhaps it was beginning to think of traveling a bit further south, or maybe it enjoyed Michigan winters too much to leave.
