Two Fishermen
Winter Pond, September 3, 2006

As I drove by Winter Pond in Winchester today I watched an immature Black-crowned Night-Heron as he watched a fisherman only a few feet away.

He was transfixed by every cast of the line.

He moved around, looking for a better angle...

and just avoided getting tangled in the monofilament line on the snag he perched on.

Sometimes the fisherman would toss him a shiner, and he would gobble it up, but he was too fast for my camera.
