Aerodynamic Hunter

I discovered this Great Blue Heron a couple blocks from downtown soaring low over Sarasota Bay hunting for dinner.  I love how its legs are fully extended.  Even its claws are stretched to be as aerodynamic as possible.

Very nice "action" shot. Mine would have been blurry.

Look at those pointed feet - like a ballerina's! Good for aerodynamics I'd imagine :) Great shot!
