Fish For Dinner? ~ Camera-Critters #171

(c) Misty DawnS

We're under an excessive heat watch for the next week. I think I should follow this Great Blue Heron's lead and just stand in the water all day. Although, after several days of excessive heat, I imagine the water will end up pretty warm and won't be too refreshing. Besides, I prefer my fish cooked unlike what this Heron is planning on for dinner.

I saw this Great Blue Heron standing in my neighbors' pond when I was on the way back from taking some baler twine to Hubs. I had to stop for a quick photo, although I didn't think it would come out very good, considering I was quite a distance from it. However, the new camera (Sony a580) continues to impress me. While it's not the best photo, the camera sure did allow me to get an "O.K." photo out of something that I wouldn't have otherwise.

We've been in a heat wave and severe drought for weeks!!! The index has soared above the 105 degree mark a few times. Yep, I would go into the marsh with the heron, but I fear snakes more. LOL

My C C Link Hope you have a great weekend.

yes, it is a good shot of the grey heron. It lookd great in the water. But for you, I think you should choose a nore lively stream for cooling down. :)
