- Title: Marsh Stalker
- State/Province/Region: Wisconsin
- Country: United States
- Nearest Town: Boulder Junction
- Best Season: Summer
- Description: Large, bright yellow eyes fixed and head cocked, this Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) stands motionless but poised to strike at fish hiding at the base of the marsh plants on a channel between two lakes. The white stripe on the top of its head indicate that this is an adult Great Blue Heron (juveniles have a solid blue crest). They can stand statue-like and move very slowly while stalking prey but have lightning speed when striking.
- Gear: Canon EOS REBEL T2i / EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM
