I came quite close to this Heron, only a meter or so away, but it still took me awhile to notice that it had caught a frog. It spent some time preparing its meal and then walked away with a smirk. These kind of shoots usually happen after a great deal of patient waiting, and one gets shots of the catch etc. In this case I was just walking through a public park looking for birds, I had been told there was one heron and it was exactly where we were told it would be. But it had already caught the frog. Most other herons would fly away with their catch but this Great Blue Heron was almost tame and seemed to ignore humans completely!
