Success; got it…

Caught it! I watched this fragile, delicate looking Great White Heron stoically stand at the water’s edge, ever diligent, undistracted by my presence, until it caught sight of it’s lunch (or snack?). I have only seen one such beautiful bird on this stretch of beach the past several years and wondered if it’s relatively small, thin, size was indication of a struggle to survive. I was surprised that it didn’t veer away from the water as I walked past. I watched as it purposely caught a small fish, probably a sardine. Copyright 2019 Pamela Breitberg
Elegant, lean, hunting machine is this beautiful Great White Heron. Copyright 2019. Pamela Breitberg
As soon as the fish was ingested the Heron was back to work hunting for it’s next snack/meal. And we think we work hard! Copyright 2019 Pamela Breitberg.
