Great Blue Heron
As I promised last week, there probably will be several paintings of the heron that called our dock home while on vacation. e really was quite the mooch, sometimes not even appearing until someone was on the dock fishing. Actually they did not even have to fish, they could be preparing to fish, coming off a boat, throwing a cast net. This gentlw giant would swoop in with a quietness tht scared one of the fishermen on the dock, as it walked up to him while he was removing a fish. I don't know if anyone refuses to feed this huge bird, especially when he stares down that beak at you. That is the most bizarre view I have ever seen, with him staring down that long bill, golden eyes focused on your hands, or whatever you have in them!
