13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Night Heron on High

Lake Balboa Park in Los Angeles has many Herons; this one was perched on a branch with the sky behind it. These Herons often blend in with the trees, and I nearly walked right into this one! This particular Heron seemed to enjoy the attention.
