Yesterday evening I spent some time set up on this rather grumpy looking great blue heron hoping it would catch a fish.
However it seemed to be much more interested in posing and preening than it was in fishing.
I was about to give up on the bird but then the sun broke through and it looked like the action might pick up.
Well it did…sort of…the heron made a stab at capturing a fish but only came up with what looked like some marsh weeds.
Despite the unsuccessful attempt, the great blue’s disposition seemed to improve somewhat, but shortly after that heavy evening cloud cover came in and spoiled the lighting so I went on my way and left it alone with the hope that he got a fish eventually!
