Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Heron (Ardea Herodias0), Skagit Valley, Feb 2011

I found this magnificent and graceful bird in Skagit Valley (Fir Island, about an hour north of Seattle), quite accidentally while photographing Snow Geese who flock annually in this region. The Heron had just finished having a lunch of a rodent hunt (explains the red color near the tip of the beak).
