The Green Heron
 
 
 
 
 
We got most of our jobs done in readiness to sail tomorrow, snuck a swim at the pool late afternoon before doing our last bit of shopping. When we got back to Beez Neez there was a Green Backed Heron on a fishing expedition, sitting on our long tethering rope (technical term). We sat and watched as he remained motionless, then as a fish swam under he clung to the rope until the point of falling - looking like he was a trapeze artist hanging by the toes - until he plunged on his prey.
 
 
 
 
 
Sitting motionless
 
 
 
 
 
So focused he didn't care about the flash
