I was down town early this week doing some photographic research for a project. When walking along Claddagh, I came across this heron standing in the narrow roadway. I assumed I would only have a fleeting moment to capture a picture before he flew off so I raised my already drawn camera and started clicking. The heron was unperturbed and let me take as many pictures as I wanted. I couldn't figure out what exactly he was doing there. Seconds later he flew on top of a nearby car and kindly posed for a few more shots. Approx. 2 minutes later I realized why he was there. A man emerged from the adjacent house with a bag of food, obviously on cue and proceeded to feed the heron. A nice surprise considering I had spent the morning photographing wooden doors.
