Great Blue Heron

Saturday morning I made a trip to Severson Dells Forest Preserve. The skies were overcast so I had to change my plans for the day a little bit. While I was walking back to where the dolomite cliffs can be found this brave Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) scared me by flying out from under a foot bridge. It did however allow me to spend quite a bit of time photographing it. This is my first encounter with one of these birds that didn’t end after a couple of seconds. 🙂
