Great Blue Heron

This was taken during a cloudy sunset. I didn't really expect to get a good shot because the shutter speed was so low, but I guess my technique is getting better. Also having the heron close helped a lot with this high ISO shot.

 

There were at least a dozen Heron out on the ice, but this one was just off the road near a spillway, maybe looking for dinner. I had to get home so I couldn’t stick around to find out.
