The next week (or more) might as well be called, “Heron Week.” You know, it’s like Shark Week, but feather-ier. For some reason this last trip down the Neuse River had herons like crazy. They were wading in the river, flying over head, standing up in the trees. They were everywhere! So, I’ve got a lot of heron pictures coming down the pipeline. I still think kayaking or canoeing down the river is the best way to see them.
We will start out Heron Week with this guy gobbling down a fish with an intense look in his eyes that borders on crazy. In his defense, I did catch him at a time where he was wrestling with a fish that he just plucked out of the river, so we’ll give him that.
