Great Blue Heron

Ardea herodias

Description:

Rode to the back of my neighborhood one morning and caught this Great Blue having breakfast. I couldn't get too close and was fighting the humidity build up on my camera lens. But you can see him chowing down on a catfish. And then while I was watching him two wood ducks pass in the background. Was really a delight to see before going to work that morning.
