…. I have stood so often and watched his incredible and silent stalking nature … almost feeling like an intruder; however, of course, he is absolutely unaware of me. I have such respect for this creatures and enjoy attempting to capture, via photo, ….the intensity and single-minded determination of the magnificent Great Blue Heron.
