Great Blue Heron

I spotted this great blue heron standing on a piece of ice floating down the Niagara River in Canada. It was moving fast and I didn’t have time to set up a tripod, so I zoomed in and took a shot just holding the camera as still as I could. While the great blue heron is not unusual in Canada, I had never seen one in colder climates in the winter, and I liked the fact that he was traveling on a piece of ice.
