I do believe photographer's and Great Blue Heron's have something in common, patience! As I stood quietly and observed these GBH's stand perfectly still for over 45 minutes waiting for just the perfect opportunity to grab that big fish, I thought to myself, that's sort of what I am doing, lol. Just as he grabbed his prize catch, it was well known in the pond, and several other GBH's descended on the scene in hopes of gaining a free meal at someone else's expense. It wasn't meant to be today, this wonderful fisherman was off with fish in tow. I never tire of standing or sitting patiently when I am in nature, the peacefulness, joy and serenity are worth every minute.
