Lookin’ up…

It’s hard not to take photos of the Great Blue Herons at Circle B, they are everywhere. And they preen themselves, or stand still and scan the water for lunch, right at the side of the trail. It’s like they don’t even notice us. But sometimes you have to look up to see them.

He seems very intent on something.
I do wonder what this is all about.
Serious hunting.
Anhinga in the tree. Drying its feathers. You can’t miss them either.
Note the sharp, pointed beak, with which he spears his lunch.
But sometimes the anhinga you thought you saw turns out to be a cormorant. Note the hooked beak.
See what I mean.
Just don’t forget to look down.
