Blue heron landing near edge of pond.

I was walking around in Bergfield pond and noticed the heron but didn't have my camera. I quickly went back to my car and got the camera. The bird had moved because there were other people walking around the pond and enjoying the geese. Some people walked by the bird and spooked him over to my direction and I got the shot of the bird flying.
