~At moonrise~

 
Last week, just as the moon began to rise we had a visitor. 
Walking along the dock ..peering into the water, looking for supper.
 
He didn't dive in, as we expected,
instead he leaned forward with his long neck,
and pulled the fish from the water.
Our new friend, the Great Blue Heron.

  5. That first photo is so beautiful....the calm water, the glow of light on the buildings....it looks so peaceful. And your visitor is quite elegant with those long legs and graceful neck. Looks like a perfect moment in time.
