Waiting for Dinner

More Heron shots from FL.  This Heron was standing right at the edge of a breakwater.  He barely moved  as I walked past him several times.  He was so intent on watching the fishermen's lines to even notice.   I think he thought he could swoop in and grab a fish from the line.  The only problem was the fishermen had only caught one fish all day.








Linking to  Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday

Happy February!  It looks like it is going to be 6 more weeks of winter.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are having a good week.

See you next time!
Barb

Here we say "only" six more weeks of winter. It could be worse! Very interesting subject to photograph. He looks as if he enjoyed the session.

Barb, these are wonderful shots- and he really must have been intent on his dinner to let you get so close! I hope the weather is warming up there..we are at a balmy 66..I may have to break out the capris if this keeps up!
