Sometimes even when I try to sleep in, I can't. Yesterday morning I woke up before sunrise, again, so I decided to go to one of my favorite small lakes to see what I might be able to photograph during the early morning light. This Little Blue Heron proved to be the perfect model and not shy at all. He walked right in front of me as he hunted for breakfast at the water's shoreline. Then he perched himself on a post nearby. Here are some pictures I made.
