Went for a walk during our "snowstorm" yesterday and came upon this Great Blue Heron stalking around. Didn't seem too worried about my presence so I managed to get off a couple shots, liked this one best.

I would never expect to see snow on the birds back like that, good catch!

I agree, this is a very nice capture of wildlife in winter. We are having our share of winter so far here in Western Oregon.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments.
The snow on its back got my attention too - my hands were plenty cold, while this bird was just wandering around apparently indifferent to the snow.
