Great Blue Heron and waterspout over the Gulf of Mexico at sunrise near Anna Maria Island.

This is a picture of a Great Blue Heron on the north shore of Anna Maria Island, Florida at sunrise. A waterspout forms behind it over the Gulf of Mexico. I took this picture last Wednesday.

I am entering this in this weeks Photo Friday Challenge: From Nature.

This photo was taken with a Canon EOS Rebel T3i and a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens.
