Monday I looked out my window and saw a Great Blue Heron wading in "Lake Soon-Be-Gone" in the field behind our building. For all the camping I've done, this is the first time I saw one up close - really close. I took some pictures of it, and discovered I really ought to have used a telephoto lens or something. They turned out all right, just not spectacular.
Lake Soon-Be-Gone, for those who don't know, shows up every time it rains in the field behind our building. It usually recedes within a day or two (depending on how saturated the ground is). Which makes it all the more surprising that the heron came up with a fish while I watched. How did a 6-inch long fish get in a lake that wasn't there two days ago?
