262Days #104 Silent Stalkers
Behind his gorgeous appearance is a silent, stealthy stalker. He quietly hold his pose and then moves in slow and patient motion when he see his prey. He favors frogs, ducklings and koi. This particular bird hung around our house so many years he mostly ignored me. Several times he allowed me to get within five feet of him before suddenly taking off.
Last year a new fellow appeared. It is extremely shy and flies off with a mere shadow. The current one is smaller and thinner and spooky. So photos of it remain illusive and difficult.
