A Very Wet Great Blue Heron
Lens: 55:300 Camera: K-5IIs Photo Location: Galveston, TX ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F5.8

Here are a few pictures of a very wet and bedraggled Great Blue Heron. I didn't realize exactly how rough he/she looked until I downloaded the photos into Lightroom. It was a wet weekend, but I'm not sure I have ever seen another Great Blue exactly as rough looking as this one - and we see GBs all the time. At Lake Conroe where we keep our boat, there seems to be one on every dock - always at the corner to command as much view as possible.

I have a friend who has an image of a Heron that is semi wet, where the bird took somewhat of a shake - and looks like it stuck its beak in an electrical plug. Feathers sticking out from everywhere.
