Photo of the Day - January 3, 2012

Blue Heron
This photo was taken in the autumn on Vancouver's English Bay.  I love how the herons seem to pose for cameras.  Less than a five minute walk from this spot, by the tennis courts in Stanley Park, you can find a large nesting area for these beautiful birds.  Herons have been nesting here for over a decade, with more than 100 nests being reported each year.  Though seen all year round in the area, they are most populous from March through to the end of August.
