As I was sitting eating breakfast this morning and looking out the kitchen window, I noticed a Great Blue Heron on a dock across the canal. He was looking intently at a group of turtles sunning themselves mere inches away. I quickly called Patty to watch with me. While most of the turtles were too big for him to eat, we felt sure he was waiting for a youngster to show up. And sure enough, one did. As you watch the slide show, I think you’re going to be surprised at the ending.
Kudos to Patty for patiently recording this extraordinary event of nature.
