Great Blue Heron's Fishing Expedition


                                                                      Fruitless!


                                                                     "I'll Betcha…"


                                                                      "Score!"

42-44 degrees/0830-0930/partly cloudy/20-25 mph wind gusts/unknown wind chill

It was cold as sin, but I could not give in to the pain in my fingers.  Being a quitter is not in my vocabulary.  This is something that I owe to myself as a photographer, to learn patience, as this heron cannot pull his meals out of a hat.  So I waited, got colder, and my fingers got numb.  Just as  was idly considering giving up, it happened.  And it was in a flash!
