SANTOLI POND: PATIENCE OF GREAT BLUE HERON REWARDED

DSC_1119I first noticed this cold, tired and hungry heron about 8:30 AM Friday.  I checked on him periodically as his hunting vigil stretched on and on, wishing all the while I could offer him a pair of warm boots.

you’ll see the toothsome brunch he glommed onto.

Buon appetito, big guy.  You’ve earned it.

Footnote–He was back this afternoon at 4:00 and was still there at 6:30, which is the last time there was sufficient light for me to distinguish his silhouette.
