- Title: Heron
- State/Province/Region: Kansas

- Nearest Town: Wichita
- Best Season: Winter
- Description: I spent an hour or so trying to seak up on these birds only to have them fly away when I got close enough to take a shot. Giving up I took pictures of the sun set on Lake Afton. As I was leaving the park I noticed this Heron in the Lake next to the road. I parked my truck in the road, turned off the engine and took this picture plus several others. The Heron was not bothered by my presence in the truck and stayed so long that I thought I would get out and try and move closer. As soon as I got out of the truck, that's right, it flew away.
f/2.8, 1/15 sec, 12800 ISO. Lightroom 4, CS6.
- Gear: Canon 5D MK III, canon 70-200mm lens
