Dodging golf balls, I let nothing deter me. At one point we stood in between two live oak trees to avoid getting hit in the head. The golfers were very gracious; however, I think I may have let my disdain for them show by sighing and making grumpy faces. As we left I noticed a big sign that said "GOLFERS ONLY ALLOWED ON GOLF COURSE." I felt like an entitled arse with my high powered camera. Bad Gail! Don't judge, you would've done the same! lol
Because my little subject was so unafraid, and didn't seem to mind a nutty camera woman recording his every move, over 400 images of just him ended up on my memory card. He caught so many fish I lost count.
At first we thought this heron wasn't quite right in the head. He twirled around in the water and performed like a ballerina at times. But each time he came up with a fish, minnow or other prey. Double D and I were laughing at him, yet we had to admit that his tactics were successful. Turns out, this is exactly how they hunt for prey. We really should have videoed him; he was a hoot!
Out of 400+ I kept 73 images. There are eight on this post. I am determined that all of them will make it to my blog, so you might be seeing him well into 2014. Thank you in advance for your patience! :)
