I went for my morning walk through Edgewater Park this morning and decided to check out a pond I hadn't really spent a lot of time around. I saw this heron sitting on the far side and got a photo of it as it was getting ready to take off.

I got lucky with this one. They are very skittish birds but this one stayed still long enough for me to get close enough for the photo.

It is like it cocks its head as a springboard to taking off.
