I spied this Great Blue Heron very close by a couple times one morning in March, and was able to get these captures before he took off. The light was almost directly overhead, but I was pretty happy with the results.

He must have been doing some serious fishing as the water looks pretty deep for him.

I haven't even seen any herons here yet. It's pretty late in the season for them to be absent, though their numbers here have been dwindling over the last few years.

Thanks for the comments! The lake is about 10 ft above normal, so yes, the heron is probably fishing in deeper water. We've always had plenty of herons & egrets at the lake, even more than usual this Spring.
