Great photo. I have a blue heron that frequents an area behind my home that I have been waiting to capture in photo.

I saw a blue heron on Saturday in Indian Bend Wash in Scottsdale, but did not stop to photograph it because it was raining. Blue herons is not what I would expect to see in the desert., but they do thrive in the little lakes and ponds in Phoenix.

Graceful is exactly the word that comes to mind.

Something below the surface of the water I think

That's amazing you have these birds there! I've never seen them here, even at the zoo!
