Great Blue Heron heads off into the morning sun

It was a rather pleasant, late spring day when I snapped this picture of this big bird. It and I played hide and seek for quite a little while. Just when I was getting in position for a picture, it would take flight in the opposite direction, frustrating my efforts. This particular time though, it flew somewhat across my field of vision giving me a decent series.

These birds have small bodies but are quite tall with massive wingspans that can reach over 6 feet wide. Oftentimes found along shorelines of lakes and calm areas of rivers, Great Blue Herons are very adept at plucking fish from the waters.
