The grace of herons

Funny how we can go for a drive towards the interior of Nova Scotia, yet still end up down in Lunenburg. That's what happened to us recently when we went on a drive to view the fall colours. We headed north and east, but somehow ended up driving south because a road we chose didn't go any further north or east...and we didn't want to back track.

So we ended up lunching late (as usual) in Lunenburg, and then made a few stops on the drive towards home so I could photograph some herons. I just love these birds! They are so elegant and graceful. This guy was fishing and I got to watch him catch one and swallow it whole.

I could watch them for hours.
