I ran across a Great Blue Heron resting among piles of snow at the Stu Visser Trails Natural Area in Holland, Michigan. The Great Blue Heron is one of my favorite birds to photograph. This was the second time in less than a week that I was fortunate enough to see one. This time I caught it at rest near some open water. Perhaps it was beginning to think of traveling a bit further south, or maybe it enjoyed Michigan winters too much to leave.
