My son spotted this Great Blue Heron hunting near the shoreline, as we were paddleboating.
We got a little too close and he flew to the other side of the lake.
But don't you know I followed him!
He wasn't going to get away from me that easily!
This time we stopped paddling, and just drifted nearby.
He didn't seem to mind.
When we got close again, he just stepped out of the water, and up onto a lakeside trail.
He knew that this was one place that the boat couldn't follow.
