While waiting along the shore in Mukilteo for the return of a ship, I saw a heron standing on the water’s edge, presumably looking for something to snack on. With the gloomy light and the shadows on the heron, I liked the atmospheric nature of the image so took it.
I posted a photo of a cormorant sitting on a post in Lake Washington in this post. More recently, the same post became the resting place for a heron. I had plenty of time to inch closer to get a better shot of the bird. The background was rather distracting so I ended up crouching in an strange position in order to get a cleaner background. The heron seemed content to wait for me to get the shot.
