Saturday Photo Hunt --- One







ONE


For the theme of ONE I am using another of my heron photos, taken very recently. He was fishing in the shallow pond on our Granville Island walk, nonchalantly ignoring the nearby swimming mallard ducks and the pigeons and the passersby. Yes he did catch a fish, but naturally I missed it!

One lone heron on the hunt


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

That's a wonderful shot of the heron. I keep missing them with fish in their mouths too.

Terrific pic, and such a majestic creature. We have some near us but I have never been lucky enough to get a good photo of one.

Guess he must be very used to humans. Most of the birds I come across in Hong Kong tend to be way more camera shy! ;)

What a great photo. I've seen herons but never been close enough to get a decent photo. Love this one!

We won't be fast enough with our finger as he would have finished the fish in a jiffy. :)

He seems to have an unwavering stare.

Kind of like a teacher who glares at you when you're in trouble.

Happy Heroning!

one wonders if it was just one fish?
