This is a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias).

From past experience these birds can be frightened easily which can make it difficult to get a good shot. Good work!

Its a Great Blue Heron. they are so hard to get close to all mine are far away

Hi Bertrand, welcome to TN I hope you enjoy your stay. Heron's are very graceful birds, this 'Great Blue' is also. Superb contrast with the background, Perhaps it could be a little sharper? (personal preference) TFS. Regards, Tim.
