[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When I saw the Great Blue Heron in the Lost Lagoon of Stanley Park , Vancouver, I found it a photographer’s delight. Never bothered to look at the crowd surrounding it, these blue herons are the epitome of concentration, standing motionless, focusing on getting the fish.

According to All About Birds (http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Great_Blue_Heron/lifehistory ) “Great Blue Herons in the northeastern U.S. and southern Canada have benefited from the recovery of beaver populations, which have created a patchwork of swamps and meadows well-suited to foraging and nesting”. Stanley Park in Vancouver has its share of beavers enabling its coexistence with the blue herons.
