I saw a great blue heron today, which means I’ll probably start seeing sandhill cranes again soon, as well.
It was on the other side of the pond and I didn’t have my monopod, so I didn’t get much good in the way of the pictures. But maybe that’s good, because it caught something. The picture quality is so bad, you can just tell yourself it’s a piece of mulch or a muddy rock, and not a frog like herons are wont to eat.
It stood around with the thing in its beak for along time. Then suddenly …
At which point my camera shook and I lost track of what was going on. Did the heron eat the thing, or lose it?
Somethings will forever remain a mystery.
