The GBH shot was a bit tight due to my close encounter with the Heron. The lighting was not fantastic either. Had to shoot at ISO 1000 to achieve 1/500 sec. at f/6.3. So far I've only seen the Heron twice on my short visits.

Miquelon Lake Provincial Park, AB, Canada.
7D | 300/2.8L + 2x | 1/1250 sec., f/7.1, ISO 640; handheld.
Another flight shot from the archive. I always prefer to have some sort of background in my flight shots, not just against the sky or water, whenever possible. This image even has a hint of clouds in the sky.
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
