The Happy Dance
This afternoon we were watching a cute little tricolored heron actively fishing in the salt marsh. The tide was coming in and it was bringing tons of fish in with it.
At one point the skillful tri struck at the water and came up with a good size fish, bigger then most fish a small heron like this would normally catch. He was quite obviously thrilled with his catch as he proceeded to dance and prance around in the water proudly showing off his prize.
This was most certainly the appropriate moment to break out into his ‘happy dance’!
I myself particularly liked the way the late afternoon light, and reflection of nearby marsh reeds made rather lovely colors in the water. I’m sure the little tri was not concerned with such things, but I thought it helped make the dance floor look even more appealing. 🙂
Thanks very much, glad you liked seeing our little friend in action!
Wow. He sure does look happy (and for a good reason).
He was quite happy and for good reason. Catching a couple fish like this will fulfill his quota for a week. 🙂
Such gorgeous legs! Fantasic pictures, Phil! These prove it is no surprise that this beautiful little bird is such a favourite.
