In the Reed Dome

I saw this Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias), submerged to the top of its legs, an immersion I haven’t seen often among herons and egrets. Shortly after I snapped the photo, an unlucky fish made a splash in the cattails, and the heron whipped around and disappeared into the camo of the reeds.

    As good as the previous post shots were, I like this one better.

    Hi, Glenn, always love it when you stop by. And thanks for the comment. I liked the frame-within-a-frame created by the reeds. It was one lucky shot before he darted into the cattails. I hope things are great at your end in SF!
