As Seen On The Golf Course

You just never know what you'll see on the golf course. Usually, the wildlife is plentiful and interesting. Today's feature presentation is a Great Blue Heron that spent some time stalking me.
It kept creeping over in my direction and when I would look, it would stand stock still until I moved on.
Now it is coming directly at me and I was wondering if it was going to go into attack mode ... but it didn't.

It started to bend forward and then straighten up and then bend forward again.
Lo & Behold! BRUNCH! It wasn't stalking me, it was stalking its meal.

Then it walked into the pond with this little mole and washed it off a couple of times.
Yummy! At least, it filled his tummy.
Yup ... see that fat neck?

That's cool. I bet the golf course doesn't have much problem with moles.

Gosh, Kath, what a great set of pictures! I LOVE herons, but I've never got to see one eat something.
