Meet my friend, the Blue Heron. And meet his unlucky friend, the fish.

Hi, Shelley!
I'm so glad you stopped by today. I'm just trying to get back into the blogging routine and I have yet to catch up on reading my favorite blogs. I hope you've been well!

This is a fantastic shot of the heron. I do feel kinda bad for the fish. But that's the way it goes!

FANTASTIC SHOT!!! You don't know how many times I tried to get photos of fishing herons when we were staying at Clark Creek South last winter. They were standing in the shallow water of the reservoir and watching for fish and then in a blink of an eye, grab one out of the water!

Frank said...

What a catch!....for him and for you. We took a short day trip up in Michigan today. I saw a blue heron as we were driving along. Of course, my camera wasn't handy.

That is a great picture.
