Last weekend I saw this beautiful Great Blue Heron patiently waiting for his dinner outside the Cambridge Mill.
There is something about these wonderfully majestic birds that intrigues me. I'm fortunate to be able to enjoy them at our cottage, by the pond near our home and out on various explorations while cycling, etc. and yet I just never get tired of watching them!
They always make me smile too, as I recall the one that used to visit my parent's backyard to steal the koi from Dad's pond. Dad finally made a wonderful wooden model of a heron and put it by the pond as a decoy to ward off the real one.
