Great Blue Herons are an incredibly adaptable bird found in many types of habitats. This one is hunting along the ocean's edge, wading through rockweed. For this shot, I slowly approached in my kayak. I took around 100 shots from various distances with a long lens, always being careful to not approach too closely. After spending about 20 minutes with this graceful creature, I paddled on, leaving the bird to continue the hunt.
