On a recent trip down to Lake Seminole Park, I spotted this little fellow tucked away in the creek area.  I almost missed him as I was driving around the park and he was so still.  Even when I walked up to take a few photographs he didn’t budge.  I got the sense, this sly heron thought I was a Tyrannosaurs Rex and my vision was based on movement (Jurassic Park movie reference intended).

Don’t move and the scary bird photographer can’t see you to eat you.

He stood still for so long that I decided I might try my hand at taking a video of him.  Unfortunately he didn’t do anything all that amazing, though it looked like he was still trying to swallow his last victim. Sadly I did not get that video. Let me know what you think.

 

Seminole Lake Park has turned out to be a go to place to go birding for me that is pretty close by.  It has been a couple weeks since my last trip over there.  Time to charge up the camera batteries and head on over.  My “Future WordPress Photo Bank” is almost dried up.

Cheers.
