One of the Great Blue Herons that lives in the neighborhood here, has come around the pond every few days to hunt for fish, larger insects and tiny animals for its dinner. The heron usually hangs out on the shoreline opposite from my home. The big wading bird scouts along the reedy shore for its meal. It is bothered by the nearby cattle or the ducks. When the Canada Geese come around in larger numbers, the heron gets bothered and flies off. These herons live along the nearby private community lake but have recently moved their rookery. There have been several trees fall in their old area so that is likely why they have relocated. This morning is a cloudy windy one. It is likely that we will have thunderstorms here today and tonight. I just looked out the window and saw a heron on this side of the pond. That is something rarely seen. I did not get good post-worthy pictures just now due to low light and shooting pictures through the window. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
