Stalked by a Heron

We are, as you can no doubt see, a little behind in the “This Week in Peterborough” series, but never fear, posting on that will resume very shortly.  In the meantime, I give you the above image of a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) here in our fair city.  I am very pleased with it, since my experience photographing herons generally involves them flying away while I fumble madly for the camera.  This one, however, had other things on its mind…

I should point out that I was not the one being stalked.  Rather, the heron’s objects of interest were the people fishing off the dock, and what they were pulling in.  The bird was creeping about not too far from them, trying to look innocent while sizing up the possibilities.
