Great Blue Heron, Captiva Beach, FL

This Great Blue Heron posed relentlessly for the many photographers who stopped to enjoy the sunset at Captiva Beach. She was unfazed by either the proximity or the numbers of paparazzi who crowded around admiringly.

It was a gorgeous end to a splendid day that included 12 miles of biking, delicious ice cream, a grouper sandwich, and wading in warm Gulf waters.
