Weekly Photo Challenge:Solitary

Friends, this Great Blue Heron is fishing alone .  They don’t like company when they are seeking food in the lake.  A solitary figure for our weekly photo theme: solitary. He stalks the shallows along the shoreline and with a quick jab catches a small fish which he swallows whole and head first.  He has been in Crex all summer and i see him in the same area every day.  He has some rust stains on his blue feathering from the water. til Tomorrow MJ
