Yesterday while on the west side of the Big Island, I saw a heron flirting with fish in a Koi pond. The heron was not shy at all. Seeing that I had my camera with me, the bird stopped trying to aim its neck and bill for a quick grab at a fish and looked at me.
"Wanna take my portrait?" said the heron.
"I would love to," I answered and began readying my camera.
I had to take several shots as the bird kept moving -- distracted by the fish in the pond but thankfully I was able to come up with what I thought were two decent photos.
I have to remember to send the heron a hard copy of the photos with a thank you note saying, "It is hard to believe that you evolved from dinosaurs. Once you were a beast; now you're a beauty."
