Great blue heron at dusk, Santa Rosa Island

This great blue heron was stalking the beaches of Santa Rosa Island, Gulf Islands National Seashore in search of fish and crabs at dusk. As the day is ending, they become more active, taking over the beach as beachgoers leave to go home, allowing the herons to hunt undisturbed in the darkness.
