Great Blue Heron
Photographer: Michele Cooke
Location: Pond in Davidson NC, near Lake Norman
Every day I would walk to this pond and watch for birds and the Blue Heron. Usually I would end up going from one side of the pond to the other to get close enough for a photo. I decided to just keep shooting as it flew off. My patience paid off while watching this amazing large heron! April 16, 2012
