2016—Oops! THIS Is Water Dance

In my haste to prepare some future posts because of travel, I apparently neglected to complete anything beyond the title of my post earlier today, Water Dance.  Perhaps I was well into a bottle of old vine Zinfandel and thought I’d completed my task.  I don’t remember.  Water Dance refers to the fascinating foraging behavior of some herons, the reddish egret and the tricolored heron for two.  Watching them pursue their prey while dancing through the shallow water can be mesmerizing.  I watched this tricolored heron zigzagging  in the shallows of the lagoon where we kayaked on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, following small fish.  This bird could change direction quickly, then plunge in its beak and capture its prey.  I took these shots before we got into our kayaks early in the morning just as the sun was coming up.
