Great Blue Heron Landing In The Wind

Large birds will take off, and land, facing the wind whenever possible. It helps with lift and braking gently on landing.

As this Great Blue Heron touched down in the marsh the photograph was able to capture the breeze pushing his full plumage as well the long wing feathers.
