We were sitting at our favorite lake fishing this past weekend, and all of a sudden this large blue heron flew right in front of us. We were at the end of the lake where sometimes fishermen park their rowboats, and it landed right there and just sat. Perfect! I grabbed up my camera and took advantage of the opportunity. Usually the blue herons at that lake are a bit more elusive, and you can only see them from a great distance. We lucked out!
