Great Blue Heron

Walk, Snack, Walk

On a casual afternoon stroll around the edge of the pond, this Great Blue Heron wasn’t paying much attention to what was beneath the water’s surface.

Or so I thought! Snatch and he had speared a small fish which went down in one gulp.

Then on about his stroll. He’s likely made this circuit before and knew he wouldn’t be in over his head, but he still didn’t seem to be watching the water.

The reflection was perfect from my angle and I wonder if the wading birds see themselves looking back?

    1. This was the first time I got any shots from that side of this lake — they call it a lake, but it is really a small pond as far as I’m concerned. The reeds and other vegetation haven’t grown enough yet to block the view.
