Camouflage

Great Blue Heron in Camouflage I was leaving a local nature area after taking photos of the egrets. While I was crossing the wooden footbridge on my way to the parking area I happened to glance to my left and there was the Great Blue almost blending in to the surrounding water and foliage. It was a lucky find as I had never seen them in this area before. I guess he wanted a little solitude.
