I was at Belmont Common. I’d gone straight to the border of the golf course to see if the white necked heron was there. Fortunately, it was.
Yes, I had the ulterior motive of trying to get a poop shot. It proved more difficult then I thought, as the long reeds was obscuring my view. I watched for at least half an hour.
The bird moved quickly. It had something in its mouth! I have no idea what it is, but it made for some awesome photography. Most of the other critters it ate were too small for anyone to quickly photograph.
The heron is in breeding plumage at the moment and looking spectacular. I loved getting the photos of it fluffing up its feathers and stretching. Here is hoping I see/photograph more of them this season!
