Almost got a straight face-on passport shot like this one. So funny! I think I scared this heron and it flew away when I was photographing it. Sorry.
A relatively chilly and windy day.
At first this heron walked away from me (we were separated by the ditch), but then it suddenly turned around and a few seconds later it stabbed into the ground. And between its bills was a vole!
It carried the vole to the ditch and dipped it into the water (washing, drowning, or easy swallowing?) and then carried it back on land.
I may stared at it for too long and so it took off to another tree in the golf course.
My DSLR should arrive tomorrow. Can't wait. I hope nothing is wrong with the delivery - since what I read on-line regarding Purolator services aren't very good. Yikes!
