It's interesting how different they are in flight, with their long necks completely doubled up, than they are standing tall, on hunting in the shallows or on watch as in your picture. Almost completely different creatures. Once while canoeing a heron feather drifted slowly down onto me, when I glided into an area from which a secluded heron had just flushed and flown off. A magical experience.
