Tresspasser


It's not very often that a heron stops by my pond for a visit. 
The snapping turtle seems to be curious too.
They stared at each other for the longest time...
With the water level so low, it must be easy pickings for a fish dinner- 
maybe they were eye-balling the same catch.

  2. That must have been fun to watch! I've only seen a heron once or twice, but never had my camera handy - I'm hoping to catch on someday. Very neat photo!

  6. Wonderfully our ponds are full again.

    I do not welcome herons. They have a feast with our growing catfish.

  16. Beautiful heron photo... I'm glad he visited your pond. Maybe he will come back and visit regularly.
    Hugs,

  17. I would have thought with all the snow and rain that your pond would be up more. Our dry creek beds even have water.
    Love herons. Their slow-mo walk is fun to watch.

  18. The heron definitely seems to be on a very careful mission! Love the "watercolour painting" effect of this beautiful scene!

  23. I think that's one trespasser you can allow anytime. :)
    Love those tree reflections!

  24. I'm surprised you don't get more herons! It seems like the pond would bring them in more often. At least he had the place to himself!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Always nice to have an unexpected visitor. Herons are great to watch - but my bird bath is too small for them!

    Thanks for the link to WBW.

    PS: sorry for slow reply - I been out of internet range in Tasmania!

  26. He acts like he owns that pond! You need some rain, we need some rain. I am hoping with all I have that we get some snow and some spring rains that fill the ponds back up and give us all the moisture we need! And that the weather pattern changes and this drought is history!!

  27. AH! So that's where my Great Blue Heron has gone. :)

  29. Beautiful photo. Wishing you a very enjoyable weekend.

  30. Great shot! I've found most Great Blue Herons to be fearless, so I hope there was enough to eat for both of them!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Maybe that's why he stopped, because your water is so low and some easy pickins' await. Hope you get more visiting soon.
