I had planned my regular “lunch hour” walk yesterday but that was cut short when I spotted the elusive heron perched on a log in the river. Of course it was on the opposite side of the river. However,
I was able to cross at a bridge downriver and walk back toward the heron on the other side to get a little closer. I stayed there for about 30 minutes just watching the heron stand on the log. Every once in a while it would turn its head toward me or stretch its neck. But mostly it just sat there while I froze my fingers. Eventually I had to leave to go back to work but I did enjoy watching this beautiful bird.
