Ralph

The resident Great Blue Heron (Ralph), at the cottage.
 
 
Morning and evening, Ralph came to fish at the rapids in front of the cottage. A patient bird, waiting for hours to catch a bite. I enjoyed watching him for hours as well.

Hi Karen. Wish I had patience of that hero. Guess herons don't have a handy fridge?

Whenever I am able to watch a GBH for some length of time I consider it my Yoga meditation for the day! They are so patient and still! I love watching them (but it is even better if I get to see one catch a fish!)
