A Great Blue Heron that I became quite friendly with, whilst on holiday in Florida last year. He was actually sitting on a fence and was about to fly off as I approached, but when I looked at the photo I realised that his pose was almost the same as when he was fishing in the water. So I took him off the post and put him into some misty water with a nice reflection and a touch of sunlight coming through the trees. I think it makes a better picture.
