Seemingly oblivious to our presence, a great blue heron stalks prey next to a marsh. It slowly moved in for the strike but came up empty on this attempt.
After spending a very cold night in my tent I woke up at 5am and drove down to the Maskinonge where I waited for the sun to start rising. One of the great things about Waterton is the sudden change from prairies to mountains which means you can get the equivalent of 3 sunrises as you make your way from the prairies into the mountains. On this particular morning I did just that. Started with this great blue heron spreading it’s wings in the fog, then to the elk making their way into the forest and about an hour later up near Cameron lake I photographed moose swimming and eating as the sun broke over the mountain and started evaporating the fog.
