Or perhaps it’s a she. But at any rate it wasn’t the first time that I saw the Tri-color Heron on my side of the pond today, but when I first noticed him I didn’t leap into action grabbing my tripod out of the car, and changing the lens on the camera. It was the second time I noticed him that I gave in to the urge to go out with the camera. Usually once I get out there he flies to the other side of the pond, but today he took pity on me and stuck around, posing like a pro. Even the sun cooperated and came out after the rain earlier. But I didn’t bargain on the wind, which didn’t seem to bother him, but it did make it even harder to keep the lens still. I thought the weather would keep me from getting out at all today so this was a treat. I really enjoy watching that little heron. He is always so busy when he is out there, he is hard to resist.
