13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Henry the Heron

I was out fishing with my husband at a beautiful pond in the country. A popular spot, and well known for this heron that likes to wait for your catch and expects to be fed. He will actually fly onto the dock and approach you when he sees that you have caught a fish. He expects it to be fed to him. A very well known local heron who's not camera shy either.
