Great Blue Heron

While we were at Holmes Lake, we noticed a couple Great Blue Herons winging around. Eventually, one of them landed rather close to the banks. You'd think these birds would be afraid of guys with cameras, but they were more than happy to just sit there chilling by the side of the lake, stalking for fish. They are extraordinarily large birds; they remind me of the Sandhills Cranes. Click to enlarge.
