Are You Having Any Luck Fishing?

Yesterday at her page Jennifer posted a video blog of a great blue heron. I got the idea to add a meme to a shot I took of one at Dow's Lake, about to go fishing.

  5. Yeah - I liked that; nice one, William! Clear invasion of privacy. PS - I see you have a little behind following you.

  6. Yes, I have known herons to be extraordinarily patient with onlookers. But, then, there does seem to come a time with them when they have had enough. :-)

  7. He was trying to hide and now you snapped him!

  8. You are very clever. These once elusive birds seem to be getting tamer and tamer!

  9. ha, that's probably exactly what he's thinking :)

  10. @Linda: that's what I was going for!

    @Parsnip: thanks!

    @Whisk: catch up when you can!

    @Julie: he must think the reeds are a good hiding spot.

    @Peter: it is!

    @Tomas: he might be reconsidering!

    @Mike: he might have been annoyed.

    @Revrunner: yes, they just want lunch!

    @Marianne: half the time they get seen by a passing person simply because they move.

    @Greensboro: I like them. They've got real character.

    @Hilary: thanks!

    @Tanya: somehow sod off seemed appropriate!

  13. I guess I don't understand fishing.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I don't like fish or fishing at all, but I like watching herons. ;-)

  15. Now I know what they are thinking...

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've been told that by a bird on many occasions.

    ReplyDelete
  17. they always look perturbed at being watched. :)

  18. LOL that's too funny!
    I'm sure that is exactly what the heron is thinking!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm trying to imagine a heron saying sod off!

  20. You do great memes--and with correct spelling, unlike most of the others seen on Facebook!

  21. @EG: yes, it's quite warped.

    @Beth: thanks!

    @Birdman: neither do I!

    @Jan: they're such enjoyable birds to watch at work.

    @VP: it seemed entirely appropriate!

    @Sharon: they think the same thing while we photograph them at bird feeders.

    @Lois: in fairness, who wants to be interrupted while getting dinner ready?

    @Tex: it's all in the glare.

    @Jennifer: thanks!

    @Hilary: thank you!

    @Tamago: along with plotting revenge, perhaps!

    @Lauren: thank you!

    @Ciel: for some reason it seems it would sound like Rowan Atkinson.

    @Norma: I have fun with memes when I get around to them.

    @RedPat: thanks!

  23. I'm sure some birds feel this way! On the other hand, we have some pelicans who hang out at the pier and seem to love posing for tourists. Or maybe it's the hope of getting a stray fish flung their way!

  24. I had a good laugh at this one, thanks William.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Herons often have that grouchy look about them, so I can easily imagine one saying this.

    ReplyDelete
  26. William, your heron speaks British slang — I never hear "Sod off" in Virginia — and even knows an Italian term. What a remarkable bird!

  27. Happens to me when I go fishing too. LOL
