Great blue heron

This heron very kindly allowed me to observe her for some minutes as she foraged in a flooded meadow. Dragonflies buzzed about her head and she made a few stabs at catching them. She speared something small– a frog, probably– swallowed it down, and flew off to a nearby pond.

She wouldn't give me her profile.

Randall reports having seen her often during his dawn bike-rides.
