Great Blue Heron

Last Sunday morning started on a sad note.  While driving to the dikes, I slowed when I saw something laying in the middle of the road, and unfortunately it was one of these beautiful herons that had been struck by a car.   I was planning on removing it from the road after our walk, but thankfully someone else had done so by the time we returned...unless a coyote got to it first.   After the sad start, I had some of the best heron sightings I've had in a while; so many individuals were out that morning.  It was quite hazy with the heat, but thankfully I came away after a lovely walk with a few good photos :) 1/1250 sec, f6.3, ISO 400
