Another early morning out shooting. Got some nice shots at the Watershed Nature Center in Edwardsville then decided to head to Horseshoe Lake State Park. That turned out to be a good move. I spotted this Green Heron among the rocks. Normally they are pretty skittish but I was able to get up real close while he just ignored me. This lasted about 10 minutes before he decided he had enough of me and moved on.
