GREAT BLUE HERON (ARDEA HERODIAS)
A CWF photo contest winner: Kemptville, Ont.’s John Maynard took this image of two fluffy great blue herons
Bill Maynard of Kemptville, Ont.: “This was an early-morning rise to get on location prior to sunrise and set up my blind in a marshy area with a number of heron nests. It was a particularly windy morning so the birds feathers were being blown around. I thought it looked like they had just been through a car wash.” Like many images we use, this was entered in a Canadian Wildlife Federation photo contest.
