[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was leaving the Ridgefield National wildlife Refuge after exploring and photographing several flocks of Swans in the rear section of the Refuge, and as I was crossing the bridge over the creek I noticed this Great Blue Heron hunting in the flooded field. I slowly approached its position in the field and as it began to stalk something I could not see I approached without any notice from this beautiful bird.

Great warm colors.
Maibe reflection will be better if complete.

Hello Steven,
This is quite striking picture. It has great colours and the reflection is a lovely bonus too (pity that it was cut).
Very good POV and framing.
