I have decided that taking wildlife photos and especially those of birds is a complicated and taxing task. The conditions, such as here in the middle of a rainstorm, are not usually ideal and you subject is not likely to cooperate. But it is important to note that this heron just stood there, waiting, I am sure for a meal to swim or crawl by. That made it a little easier to get off the shot, so to speak. This photo was taken on the main beach of Victoria, B.C.
