Opportunistic Herons Catching Fish
SEPTEMBER 4, 2017
From the bridge over the creek on Beach 22nd Street it is fun to spot herons fishing in the creek and in the early morning the sun is perfectly placed to put good light on them. One of the black-crowns and the Green Heron were clearly in hunting mode, leaning over the water, staring intently. But why had these herons chosen this particular spot to go fishing? Never have I been so glad not to be a fish! It was fun to watch, much more so for me than for the fish!
