My sister and I were out kayaking on the St. Croix River on the Minnesota-Wisconsin border this summer and discovered a Heron Rookery by chance. I went back by myself two weeks later with my camera while the river was flooded and river running high. It was perfect for me to get into areas that are hard to paddle into when the water is at its normal level. I took a lot of photos of Blue Herons, White Egrets and Cormorants. Here is one of my favorite photos of a Blue Heron (my favorite bird).
