Herons on the prowl   Leave a comment

Several herons (or egrets) made the marsh near our town beach their hunting ground today. What graceful creatures – and perfect for photographers since they tend to stand very still as they wait for unsuspecting fish to appear at their feet.

this one took off as soon as I got closer than 100 feet.

Soaring towards another feeding spot:
