Great Blue Heron

Only two weeks ago, this fallen tree was far beyond the water line.  With the warm weather, the river has risen quickly.  I'll be interested to see if the water gets high enough to move this tree from where I have seen it for the last six months or so. On this morning, it was an excellent perch for a great blue heron. 1/160 sec, f13, ISO 1000

The beautiful curve of the heron's neck is mimicked in the branches reflecting in the water by the heron's legs. 1/500sec, f13, ISO 1000
