Camouflaged Heron – Weekly Photo Challenges: The Golden Hour & The World Through Your Eyes
The only movement was a slight tilt to her head, first to the left, and then an almost imperceptible extending of her neck, up up higher higher until she was staring straight down into the lake. Whoosh, as arrow beak pierced the surface, and her body lunged fully beneath the water, energy exploding water droplets everywhere.
When last I wrote of The One that Didn’t Get Away, you saw the great blue heron flying off with her prize catch – an enormous pike in her beak. This was the scene only moments before, when her arrow beak pierced the surface, energy exploding droplets everywhere.
Thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress for the inspiration of this Golden Hour Weekly Photo Challenge and also this Weekly Photo Challenge, where we were challenged to “share a photograph that shows a command of your frame. Lead our eyes somewhere. Make us focus on something.”
