Great Blue Heron

Behold the great blue heron, which we followed to one of its favorite spots.  We’ve never seen it hunt here, but it often lands here in the evening to relax.  It stands incredibly still and gazes down the length of the creek.  Curiously, it rests and even flies with its right foot curled up. nor is this behavior unique to this bird.
