Great Blue Heron

During a walk past Shoreline Lake, I spotted this Great Blue Heron. Most of the time, I see egrets, so this heron really stood out. However, it was dusk and I only had the Really Right Stuff Pocket ‘Pod with me. I wasn’t sure if the thin railing was stable enough. Additionally, while the bird appeared to be still, at 2.5 seconds, any movement would result in motion blur.

Got lucky on this one.
