Heron Fishing

I was walking through the park and came across the Heron fishing.

She is very adept at fishing and spends a lot of time in the lake here in the park looking for breakfast, lunch and supper.

Here she is wading in the lake, on the hunt.

She is graceful in or out of the water or flying. She is my favourite model.

She walks in the water, going back and forth looking for just the right fish.

Someone threw bread in the water for her. It was just a temporary distraction for her.

She caught two fish and came out of the water.

But she dropped one behind that bush and the Blue Heron scooped it up.

So she went back to the hunt for more fish.

She strutted on shore, proudly, for a while.

Then it was back to the shore to continue the search.

Back into the water.

Searching! Searching!

Wow! She got one. Look at her thrust into the water to get it. The pigeons watch her perform.

She even had a gallery on the bridge watching the action.

It is always a delight to watch her in action. She puts on quite a show.
