We had decided to walk all way around the back rice field at the plantation. It’s about 2 1/2 miles of dirt trail and dike. Tall grass hides a lot but some open areas can be interesting. Besides, I only do this when it’s not hot and the morning was perfect.
We had not gone more than 100 yards and found a Great Blue standing and watching the marsh water. The trail is no wider than 20 feet, at its widest.
We were of no interest at all, food was in that water.
I took this as we passed him by.
He was not the only Heron out here with us. He was the most accommodating though.
