    A Great Blue Heron misbehaving.

    I'll fish if I want to.



    Besides, if I hide behind here no one will see me fishing.



    Now to casually stroll away acting innocent.

    Hi David –

    I enjoyed your scenes – thanks.

    On our five mile walk along the canal yesterday we didn’t see one, in fact it was quite sterile, not much around.
    The enjoyment though was the exercise and the meal half way through.


    Regards Barr1e

    I was down at the bay for the sunrise so I didn't notice the Heron arrive. I checked the sky behind me and the
    Heron was fishing where a creek runs into the bay. I had to wait for it to walk behind the No Fishing sign.

    There was a grey heron in the refurbished water gardens in Hemel Hempstead a couple of weeks ago. It seemed quite unperturbed by the shoppers gawking at it I was going to take a picture then the heavens opened and after the shower it was gone!

    This is the time of year that this years young are roaming around learning where to fish (and what's edible in some cases) so it could have been a youngster.

    You should have had a splash proof camera with you.

    To me it always looks as if this immature Grey Heron is trying to decide if that part of the stump is edible.

    Yes, but I wasn't splash-proof!
