Today while biking to Yudaonsen to go to Manga shoko (discount, recycled, 2nd hand warehouse) I came upon this awesome bird! I think it’s a blue heron.

I’ve been on the hunt for a photo of one of these. Whenever I get close enough, they always fly away before I can take a shot. I’ve taken to carrier my camera constantly on the route that goes from my house to the grocery store because they sometimes frequent the river I pass on the way.

Today, is a lucky day.
