Blue Heron at Portland Rhododendron Gardens

Heres a shot of a Blue Heron that I nearly stumbled into, I was walking along, looking at the ducks, saw some movement in the corner of my eye and looked up. Right in front of me was this huge (and irritated), Blue Heron. I quickly shot off a shot, then turned on my flash to fill in the shadows and gain some detail, and got a second shot before he flew off. His reaction to my presence is evident in this image, I have to say, I was nearly as surprised as he was!
