Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone who celebrates a day like today! Mother Nature has given us (in Northern California) the gift of rain on this beautiful Monday.

This male great blue heron (Ardea herodias) stopped by to check the land and wasn’t very thrilled that we wanted to take his picture. He promptly flew away as I got closer. His mate, on the other hand, actually stayed and roamed around the area on foot for a while.

Technical data: f/5.0 at 1/500th sec, ISO 100.
