Saturday Critters #510

Having the perfect spot when fishing is crucial.....this guy had it.
He caught fish after fish and no matter how close I got to him, he would not fly off.
He knew what he had and 
he was not going to give up this awesome fishing spot for some crazy lady with a camera.
- I say he, it could be a she, they are difficult to tell apart -

The Gray Heron

Poor fish, crying for help...if you look closely you can see it's mouth open!

I can't believe how close I got to this Heron right out in the open.
It definitely saw me, kept its eyes on me and in a way, it interacted with me.
A great fisher with an awesome fishing spot!

Oh, my goodness Debbie what a catch not only for him but for you capturing it!
What gorgeous views too! Betting his breakfast was tasty too! Enjoy your weekend and more moments soaking up nature!

Some very great shots. Makes me glad we are at the top of the food chain so something is not trying to gobble us up!

If he could fly after eating all those fish it would be remarkable!
