LAZY AFTERNOON (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

There are a couple of beaver lodges at the lake. We didn’t see any beavers that day but we did come across this Great Blue Heron making itself comfortable on top of the lodge. It was looking pretty sleepy, maybe it had just eaten and felt like a rest. We stood at the shoreline within 25 feet or so from the heron and with my 300 mm I was able to get some nice clear shots. When we left, the bird appeared to be completely asleep.
