A Life Less Interesting
What did I do to you when you were young to give you such an imagination ha ha …very good… both the photos (Phil did good didn't he)…and the script!
Blame it on too much Johnnie Morris and "Animal Magic" when we were kids.
Sneaky,er, bustard, pretending to be a shade tree rather than the evil, black heron he is. But it is clever - to be the shadow, rather than just lurking in it.
Clever indeedy, Speedway. Like having your own polarising filter. In the shade of his wings he can see past the surface reflections to what lies beneath.
Quite the stealthy hunter! The "Count Dracula/umbrella" move is very clever. We have Great Blue herons here, and I've watched them stalk fish and river creatures. But I haven't seen them do this number.
Perhaps it's the other way around, and Dracula imitates the night heron? Either way, he's smarter than yesterday's trouser turkey.
Ms.M. our herons. too, are more conventional hunters. I believe the night heron is the only species to have figured out how to eliminate surface reflections. A cool trick.Petrea, I would love to see a vampire movie where they prey on frogs and fish. It would certainly have made Buffy a stranger TV series.
Cool birds! I did post my Yellow Crowned Night Heron for you Dive!
Yay! Welcome back to Blogville, Neetzy. Love your heron! Oh, and get well soon.
