Waiting herons

Many great blue herons hunt in the Nisqually River delta and Puget Sound. I once watched a heron hunting at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge for half an hour. They are very patient hunters, slowly walking or wading, then like snapping up prey in the blink of an eye. Wait for it...BAM!

I wrote about Today's Pterodactyl last month in this blog. I'm hoping to photograph one of the heron rookeries this spring. In the meantime, I'll scan the skies for those massive wings and the river delta for patient hunters.
