Cameron Gillie — A great blue heron goes about his business of hunting for a meal near Loop Road in Big Cypress National Preserve. This is one of the photos featured in the Bonita Banner's outdoors page that staff writer Chad Gillis and I produce each month. We travel to places like Loop Road in an attempt to capture the tranquility and splendor of Southwest Florida's wild areas in words and photos and bring that home to the readers. This particular photo was taken just as we prepared to leave Loop Road after a day of exploration. I couldn't have directed the heron to pose any better even if I was able to. Moments like this great blue heron appearing at the right place at the right time make your day.
