Silence in Chaos - Great Blue Heron Amid Rapids in Great Falls National Park, Virginia

Hello world! I've been busy photographing quite often this summer in Great Falls National Park, Virginia. This image was taken from the Virginia side, and depicts a seemingly contemplative bird pondering who-knows-what! He stood in this location for about an hour, but only a few images made the cut that had the right light, head position, and good water flow. The rest ... ruthlessly deleted!
