Wednesday Wings - Great Blue Heron
We're getting a beautiful taste of spring this week with sunshine and daytime highs in the low 60s.
The frogs are coming out of hibernation, and this young Heron has been coming to the pond to feast on them for several days now.
The huge birds stand patiently still in the water until an unsuspecting snack passes by. Then they grab it with their powerful beak and swallow it down their long neck.
