March weather in Utah is often unpredictable. The sun is just shining and everything is so peaceful, and suddenly in a matter of minutes the clouds hide the sun and a strong wind comes out of nowhere.
Birds have different ways of escaping from the storm approaching. Everyone has their own place to hide. This heron found shelter in a thicket of dry reeds to wait out the strong wind and rain.
While photographing the Heron I used one shot-focus with extended points for the first time and it worked well.
Life goes on.
