A recent post portrayed a great blue in the rain. This sequence unfolded a few minutes later, just after the rain stopped. It’s the same bird, trying to decide whether to stay or go. After shaking water from its wings, it finally chose the latter course. It took off so fast, however, that I missed the shot.

This sequence was recorded on August 28, 2012, a day when anglers were absent from the pond due to rain, allowing this bird a brief return. The time of each photo is displayed beneath it.
