Amazing capture of this heron Janet. Now I wonder what he can hear? #302235

Thank you Kate. He was fun to watch. My husband and I were in our kayaks when I took this photo. This little guy would just not fly away. He was posing for me. It wasn't until after we paddled beyond him that he finally flew off. #1779965
