Good Morning Kiss Great Blue Herons

I had a blast photographing a pair of Great Blue Herons as they built their nest and paired up for the season for a couple of weeks. They are very demonstrative and cuddly. This was captured as the sun was rising one morning and they were about to start their day. I nicknamed this pair Fred and Ginger.
