Great Blue Heron Fishing

I was going through photos on one of my hard drives today and came across an immature Great Blue Heron fishing in a small pool of water. I don’t recall ever posting them on this site, so I thought I would share a few with you.

Taken September of 2008 at Biddeford Pool, Maine. I remember it being cold that day, and I crawled down a drainage ditch to get a better perspective. At one point, a car stopped and a child got out and started throwing rocks into the water. With me wearing camo, the occupants of the car didn’t know I was there until a rock whizzed by my head and I let out a “Watch it!” They left and the Heron and I were alone. Here’s the results.
