This great blue heron took a breather on the island in Lake LaVerne during a beautiful autumn day last week. It's likely he or she was passing through Ames on the way to a warmer destination before winter strikes, though it's not unusual for great blue herons to hang out near lake edges and shorelines in this part of the country.
