Noah and I stopped at the park yesterday......and we saw this......

He was all by himself.......and was hungry because he came to fish!

He got down into the water and began scoping out the possibilities. While sitting in the truck watching him.....and snapping away......he caught and ate at least 5 different fish.

They pose very much like a pointer dog before grabbing their catch!

I was talking at this point to the crane asking him to spread his wings.......he never did do that but he did stretch up really nice and tall for me......

and of course I zoomed in for a close-up of his legs and feet.......they were huge.....

Good afternoon, some really nice photos. How many did he eat?

Your Dad came over to my computer to take a look, since I already had your blog up, he said he might put a link on one of his blogs to these photos, if that's all right with you. He said they are really nice.

More later,
Love you guys

Very nice set of photos Melinda. I have seen that bird in the park before but never went to photograph it. You really hit this one just right.

Melinda said...

thanks dad! It was fun watching him!

Great photos Melinda. I showed Audrey this morning, and showed her the ones of him with the fish in his mouth.
