Photo of the Day #21: Heron for a Day
I was in Kyoto, Japan for a photochemistry conference in April 2006. It was an amazing time of the year: the cherry trees were blossoming and the weather was good, at least quite a bit of the time. Unfortunately the conference took most of my time and I didn't have much time to roam the city.
However one morning I decided to wake up early and see what Kyoto had to offer. Luckily I wasn't disappointed: a magnificent Heron was basking in the morning sun on top of a Temple. It wasn't too bothered by my presence, so I had plenty of time to take quite a few pictures before it flew away.
