A Lone Heron / by Ed Shanahan

You never know what you will see if you keep your eyes open.  Another life lesson reinforced in Yellowstone.  This heron was perched in the woods along the side of the road as we drove by.  Tim McGowan who was sitting in the front seat saw him as the clouds parted and the heron was illuminated in a ray of sunlight, sitting maybe 200 feet away.  He patiently waited and posed as we took our shots.  After a few minutes we thanked him and moved on.
