I went to Wilde Lake, yesterday, hoping to be able to capture a Great Blue Heron. I was lucky and managed to photograph this fella while he/she was on the ground. I wasn't in a good position to catch him/her when he/she took flight. Can you tell I have no idea how to tell the herons apart? I think this was a relatively young heron because it was significantly smaller than the ones I've seen in the past. You can find out more about herons at http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Great_blue_heron/lifehistory/ac.
