Hey, I Was Here First

I happened upon a Great Blue Heron on the embankment alongside the wildlife drive at Blackwater NWR.  Didn’t he hear my car pull up behind him?

He was so close, he had to.  He just chose to ignore me.

Great Blue Heron


Why?  Because he had better things to do.  Fish!

I slowly pulled away to give him back his space, so he could continue his mission.  This Great Blue Heron wasn’t leaving his spot no matter who pulled up behind him.  Rightly so!  Isn’t that one of the rules of fishing, that he was there first?  🙂
