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?
