Great Blue Heron having a snack.
Another one of my "secret" spots. This GBH has been visiting this spot for several years. I have my favourite rock by the shore that I can sit on and watch as it wades and feeds. It knows I'm there, but has become accustomed to me.
I love taking pictures of small birds, especially downy woodpeckers.

Savannah Sparrow, Calgary, Canada. I did say that I like small birds.
A Playful Miss
Come on in. The water's fine! For those wondering, this is a female common merganser. Some of the first wildlife images I ever took were of mergansers. They can be quite playful if you let them get accustomed to you and don't invade their space.
