Great Blue Heron on the beaches of Mexico

I came upon this Great Blue Heron when I was walking along the shore in Longboat Key, Mexico this past summer. I had left my camera back in our villa so I ran back quickly to get it. And to my surprise, when I returned the Heron was still there. As a photographer, birds have always interested me. I believe Mother Nature's greatest creation was a bird. Birds represent freedom and grace; their ability to fly gives them no limits. When taking this picture, I captured the most prominent aspects of these creatures: the soft feather, long beak and sharp eyes.
