Great Blue Heron, Early Morning, Pensacola Bay

I see Great Blue Herons frequently near my home, but the ones that I spot on the Gulf Shore, nearly 800 miles away, seem less skittish, less caring about the nearness of humans, and maybe a bit more willing to share a piece of shoreline.

This bird stood still for several minutes in the early morning breeze.   Once Reveille from the nearby military base was played, he slowly walked down the shore, poked his beak into the surf a few times, then slowly flew away to the rest of his day.
