Great Blue Heron

We see a heron up at the pond quite often, but it always flies off as we approach and I've never managed to get a satisfactory picture of it. Last night (as if to underline how wet the vegetable garden still is) it visited the barnyard. We were sitting outside, so it didn't stay around for long when it realised that it had company, but it was just long enough for me to run off and get the camera for this snap.
