I have been visiting family back in Indiana and this GBH lives by my dad. They were having a real heat wave when I was there, and I saw this GBH with his wings like this...I am thinking he was trying to cool down! Sorry the picture is not the best. If you get anywhere near him, he takes off. This is heavily cropped.

After cooling off, he went fishing!
