I returned to the bass ponds in the Long Meadow Lake Unit of the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge. I have made several trips to this location over the past couple weeks in search of a descent picture of a belted kingfisher which I spotted there. This kingfisher is very wary and seems to move every time I am just about set up. This time however he flew to the top of a midsized tree and I was able to get some OK shots.
While I was there I got some shots of a great blue heron in flight,
