Shot this guy/gal after it waded around the pond behind my apartment,
hunting frogs or fish. It perched on the fence rail before clearing out.

I think this is the same bird, though I can't be sure.

I've learned that this is a juvenile Great Blue Heron.
There are others around here, though juveniles seem to be
coming here, instead of adults.

I found different settings more appropriate for this image, as well.

I have no idea if it's the same bird, but I spotted another Great Blue today.
