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

One of my favorite birds to watch. They have such patience.
The little fish don’t stand a chance against these skillful fishers. 🙂
Such beautiful birds. I could watch them for hours.
We sat and watched them for quite a while. It was amazing watching these tall, slender birds creep along and then strike with such accuracy.
I always like the quotes you include as well as your excellent shots!
Thanks, Wayne. I enjoy reading quotes and it’s fun to match them up with my photos.
