175/366 | Green Heron Brunch

June 23, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Feeling completely stuck and uninspired lately, I drove to LSU Lakes to try my luck there. Listened to some good devotional podcasts in the car and had special time with God, too.

On arrival I was only seeing Mallards, grackles, and some other ducks. I was about to give up when I decided to try a spot where I've had luck before. And there was the Green Heron tucked away in a corner at the edge of the golf course lake. Limbs, sandbags and trash surrounded him. I sat under a shady oak and observed for about 30 minutes. Finally, he nabbed a fish! Nothing gets me more jazzed in photography than watching a bird capture its prey.

PS to the rescue for the empty bread bags and fast food containers beneath the limbs and behind the bird. If I owned a million dollar + home in that area I would not be happy with the algae and trash littering those otherwise beautiful lakes.
