The Heron

Got away to Denman Island for a few wet, dreary days. Part of what made the trip enjoyable was watching the local heron hunt for his breakfast and lunch right on the beach in front of the cabin. The one shot that I missed was when we saw a second heron come gliding into the bay from around the point... all seemed amicable until the second heron, landed on top of the first one, and then they proceeded to have a little tussle and then both fly off. I've never actually seen that happen before, and of course my camera was tucked safely away. Typical.
