I was amazed at how easy-going this fellow was. But come to think of it, considering that Hall's Pond is in the midst of urban madness, what's the big deal about some guy walking around with a camera? So we gazed at each other - at least I was amazed but friend heron seemed mostly uninterested.
So I spent a quiet few minutes observing this fellow or gal and wondered what its life was like and how it had come to visit us in Brookline. Mostly, I was grateful for the opportunity to see this creature so at ease with itself and its surroundings.
