This photo was taken in the autumn on Vancouver's English Bay. I love how the herons seem to pose for cameras. Less than a five minute walk from this spot, by the tennis courts in Stanley Park, you can find a large nesting area for these beautiful birds. Herons have been nesting here for over a decade, with more than 100 nests being reported each year. Though seen all year round in the area, they are most populous from March through to the end of August.
