A Heron Visits For Dinner

With a neck like this there should be no misses when catching dinner.  There are two regular visitors to the pond and this one must be younger because he does miss and has a different approach to the task.
This strike was a miss.  He's somewhat an impatient fisherman (bird).  Moves too fast and in many cases he walks along the bank so he's actually too far from his prey.
After missing several times from this location he decided to go ahead and move on along the back but in the water.  He's headed into a known feeding ground for the fish.  We can see their activity around the pond in several locations so dinner may be just ahead.
