Tricolored Heron

This was another photo captured on a walk home with my parents. We walked along many small ponds, through forest trails, and on the ocean coast, but we didn't see any birds for a long time. Finally, on our way back, we found this heron posing for us in the water. The sun was going down and the strong reflection of the bird stuck out to me.
