#14 - Line From A Song

"Take these broken wings and learn to fly".   I didn't really like that song much, but the lyric pops into my head very often when I see the Great Blue Heron lift off.  They have an orange patch on their elbows that look at first like glance like a broken wing with dried blood.  This guy just got done eating a very large bass and it must have weighed him down - he struggled to gain altitude, but it gave me a nice series of reflection shots.
