I love your picture!!! We live in So. Calif. have a lake near our house and sometimes I see a Great Blue Heron...takes my breath away when they fly across the lake. A few weeks ago a great blue landed in my almost empty swimming pool...he flew up a little into some branches and sat there looking right at me!!! He finally flew up and over me. I'll never forget how he stayed and kept looking at me.

I think that turned out great. That branch he's on must be really big. LOVE the dark green backdrop, looks like a jungle.
