A clump of beautiful green water lily leaves shimmering in the sunshine looks so innocuous doesn’t it? But wait just a moment; something is lurking quietly there almost imperceptible unless one looks closely.
Big Al is on the prowl, making not a sound as he glides along. I wonder why his teeth seem too big for his mouth and hang out at the side.
As he comes into view, I can see the sly look in his eye as he scouts around for his prey.
He does look rather mean and purposeful today and I’m sure he won”t go hungry for long.
Wishing you all a happy weekend, but do be careful around water lilies. You never can be sure about what lurks beneath.
Paula’s challenge this week is ‘Reflection’. Just as the sun was setting over the Wakodahatchee Wetlands, this Tricoloured Heron was looking for a suppertime snack, or maybe he was just reflecting upon his day in the marsh.
Do you remember this pair of Great Blue Herons? I seriously wondered if their relationship was going to last, because it looked like Ms. GBH was trying to pick a fight with her mate.
The next time I saw them, they didn’t even seem to be speaking to one another!
Then a few days ago, I was so relieved to see that all was hunky-dory again, and there they were, playing ‘happy families’. Mommy was feeding the babies whilst daddy was doing a bit of home restoration.
I do love a happy ending, don’t you? Have a great weekend, and think of me playing my heart out on Sunday night.
