We have a great blue heron that fishes in our pond in the mornings and sometimes in the evenings. It is extremely shy and flies away the moment we walk outdoors.

But today we were surprised by two great blue herons in our pond! If you look closely at the photo below you can see our regular heron flying away, directly above the new heron that is standing on the ground.

The newcomer was much braver than our regular visitor. This guy (or girl?) took a short flight across our little pond when I got too close then promptly went back to fishing.
