Blue Heron Sighting!
We took a ride into the woods
looking for wildlife to take photos of,
and we were lucky!
We were by a little lake
spied a Blue Heron playing and eating in the reeds.
However the sun was at a bad angle
where he was standing.
But, as all of you who shoot wildlife photography know,
you can't pose them
the way you want them to be.
You go with the flow...
and capture what you can!
So, here are my photos of this beautiful creature for you to enjoy today:
He was saying:
"Whoa...! Is that a FEMALE over there across the lake?
Well, lookey here, Sweetheart...I am your type and have plenty of time today for you!":
"Maybe I'll just look coy over here, like I'm fishing or something. Yeah, that's right..that will work...
I'll look busy and nonchalent. Does she see me yet? How about now?":
"I'll pretend like I am leaving. That will get her sorry that she didn't come
meet me sooner and she'll scramble right over here!":
"I better groom up some and shake off some of this pond water! Chicks love that!":
"Don't hate me because I'm beautiful!"
"Wait? It worked! Is that her, flying across the lake to see me?" (Those males of every species are all alike, aren't they?)
No female comes.
"I'm too good for her anyway. Maybe it is better just to look away and act casual!?":
"But, wait! Maybe I'll just take one more glance her way.
Yeah. That's it...
She is NEVER going to resist this come-hither look!".....
"Man, I need heron glasses...that wasn't a female!! That's a log over there!!...
"And to make it worse: Some crazy lady got my humiliation on camera.
