Friday morning brought a walk down to the lake. The beaches weren’t open for swimming yet, some fishermen were out on the lake, and I got to spend some time drinking in the lake’s beauty.
I found a deserted dock.
Wait…not so deserted. A Great Blue Heron and I shared the dock. As I crept closer, the heron maintained his still, graceful stance.
Closer and closer.
Pretty good for an iPhone. But oh, what I could have done with my big girl camera!
Some boaters came near and he got a little fidgety, then he stopped, leaned over the dock, peering into the water, flew down and came up with a fish in his mouth. But alas, our time together was disturbed by the boaters and he flew over to the next dock.
But what a lovely time we had together, he and I.
