If the tide is right - there are herons to be found
The problem is finding a place to pull over to safely get photos
This section of the harbor has narrow, twisty roads and almost no shoulder on the roads, so we count ourselves extremely lucky when the herons perch on rocks near a clearing where we can park.
As I zoom in on the heron I see that his coloring is darker than most of the herons that we usually see
He didn't seem too interested in fishing for dinner, perhaps he had caught his fill earlier
Something flew over and caught his eye
The feathers are beautiful
Now those sharp eyes are searching for food
