Go out State (M-15) to Stanley Rd. Stop in the Fishing Parking Lot just before the Holloway causeway. Pathways lead you to the edge of the reservoir.
This was no small trick to complete. I had one foot partially down the embankment, camera on a monopod sticking out from it, and trying to stay steady. Count not spooking the bird and that caps why I'm happy with this shot.
I found this Great Blue Heron down in the shadows at the Holloway Reservoir in Genesee County, Michigan. I saw that the grasses and shoreline vegetation were shadowed across its beak.
