Great Blue Heron Montage

Great Blue Heron atop the dam at Wilde Lake. It was closer to the opposing side of the dam but there is currently construction on the stream below the dam (pathway bridge will be rebuilt after finished). It was tempting to wade through a few feet across the stream but decided to go back to the north end of the bridge. The lighting was great today as it was cloudy and nearly sunset when I went on 02/16/18. He flew away a few minutes later but was in the same place when I returned an hour later. You can consistently find a heron at Wilde Lake. This particular heron looks like a juvenile based on it's size and plume atop it's head.

Lens - Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD @ 400mm on Nikon D5500
