Looking for dinner
This Little Blue Heron was stalking some dinner by a pond near my house. In the second photo, you can see it giving me a look like it didn't want me taking its picture, but then went right back to what it was doing. I had originally gone there because I heard there was an alligator hanging around the pond, but later found out that someone who lived in one of the houses that backs up to the pond had called the Nuisance Alligator Hotline and an alligator trapper contracted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission had already removed it. There is a swampy area close to this pond, so it's probably only a matter of time before another alligator shows up.
