Great Blue!

Look who showed up in my yard this morning and stayed long enough for me to shoot about 100 photos. I've seen Great Blue Herons from a distance, but never up close like this. The last photo is my favorite. The light wasn't great so I was shooting wide open (f4) for 1/60" -- long enough to blur out the body feathers as the bird fluffed them up.

For scale, each of those white-painted pieces of wood is 3.5" tall. This is a big bird.
