This Heron was hunting along the edge of a large man made pond. Just off behind was a perfectly good swamp, but this is where he chose.
He was working this spot hard too.
I was leaving the area when I noticed him, they generally are smart hunters so I waited around to see what he would do.
Slow and methodical work. For me, like watching paint dry. Everything was so slow he was killing me.
The Heron kept up his slow motion moves. Finally I had to change my spot.
As soon as I had a tree between us………. He got his fish.
Me, of course I missed the catch. At least he finally had something. Bad luck for the fish.
