Great Blue Heron

These heron were doing some serious fishing out on flooded farm land near the Mississippi River.  They crept along slowly … watching …  listening … and then striking with lightening speed.  Each strike was generally rewarded with a tiny silver fish.

“The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.”  ~John Buchan
