Each year the Great Blue Herons build their nests in the trees along the banks of east branch of the DuPage River. They establish quite a large rookery there with multiple nests. The photo I took shows a parent coming in with a fish in its mouth to feed the newborn herons.

This photo was taken in my backyard. I was inspired to take this photo because it was the first cool looking sunset I have seen this spring, I wanted to add a little bit of creativity, so I focused it on a couple of tree branches. I'm a freshman at Dundee-Crown High School.
