Rougemont, QC, Canada
As the sun was setting on a late summer’s day, I was sneaking up to a pond, hoping to take a photo of the Great Blue Heron that had been frequenting the area. But my sleuthing was to no avail as the Heron saw me first and took flight! I froze hoping the Heron would land close enough to me that I could still take some photos. And as the Heron circled the pond, looking for a good hiding spot to wait out the unwanted visiter (me), the Heron at last decided to land at the top of a nearby tree. The photo is taken as the Heron tries to settle on the swaying branches.
