20100520 436 Grey Heron - Blauwe Reiger SERIES.jpg

Medemblik, The Netherlands

Four images of a Grey Heron hoping to cash in:

Top Image: The Grey Heron standing on a lawn on the far side of a moat in front of our bungalow. It is keeping an eye on a fisherman on the other side of the hedge, hoping to get a discarded catch.

The Grey Heron nudged up closer to the three fishermen/woman.

With only one fisherman now, the Grey Heron moves in for a closer look.

A small fish is caught, the heron moves closer, but alas, the fisherman pays it no attention to the Heron and throws the fish back in the water. This would repeat and go on for hours and hours on several consecutive days with both the fisherman and the Heron having lots of patience.

other sizes: small medium original auto
