I was able to get this photo while standing on a hill behind it. At first, it didn't see me and stayed pretty still. But, something spooked it (I think it was someone fishing on the shore) and it flew off right after I got the photo.

I tried shooting a heron today but it hid from me behind a tree

Herons seem easily spooked. I would have thought they were bolder like seagulls.

They are quite jumpy. The cranes, in comparison, will just stand around staring at you unless you actually start moving closer to them.

That's a nice photo. Some birds can stand still for hours.
