Around the corner

After clearing away the cob webs, I noticed that the kayak had drifted toward the Leacock Villages.
I was not alone.

This is rather close and I suspected that the heron might be a juvenile. I do not know of any nearby, say within 10km, heronry. Maybe somebody would comment?

It was not bothered by my presence as I drifted closer. It was busy preening its feathers.

One leg, even - odd!

I talked to it in the hope that maybe in another year I would be permitted to photograph it again.

I think it heard me!

I paddled on to other adventures, leaving the heron watchful.


PS The heron has stayed now for 3 days feeding itself. I have not approached it again.
