Welcome to Heron Heaven

I’ve visited the Basha Kill wetlands dozens of times, and I love that I never know what sort of wildlife encounters I’ll have. On my most recent visit, I was treated to this idyllic scene unfolding:

We spotted this great blue heron, and thought “pretty!” I started snapping photos. And s/he didn’t like that.

So s/he took flight. We thought that was the end of things.

But no! S/he headed for another heron, who was in the middle of a fish dinner.

And together, they took flight.
