It wasn't until I downloaded this photo and looked closer that I realized the little dark blob just in front of the Great Blue Heron is actually a big flying insect. Imagine that! At the time, I just thought the heron was enjoying a good stare into space while he waited for an unsuspecting meal to happen by --- perhaps a lizard or small rodent. Little did I know (according a bird website), the GBH will "eat nearly anything within striking distance". Hmmm…I don't recall him snapping at the air. But, now I wonder if that blob could've been appetizer.
