It has rained so much in our area that the field behind our house now has become a regular pond. The shimmering standing water occasional makes the area look like a big lake, or at least I believe that is what this blue heron thought he saw.
Out of the blue he landed, looked around, and then thought:
"Nope, not as appealing as it looked from up above".
And so he took off just at quickly as he landed. Of course trigger happy me, was there to spot him.
