For those of you in the U.S. I hope you're enjoying the start of a lovely holiday weekend! Here in Eugene, the weather is glorious so Mr. Bonnet and I started off our weekend with a leisurely bike ride downtown and lunch at the aptly named Cafe Yumm. We have a nice bike path that runs along Amazon Creek for most of the way in to town. Along the way we spotted this guy - I think this is a blue heron. As we watched he treated us to a little fishing demo. I love the way he walks by sticking his neck out first, with his head coming along later. It's not on this video but he also does an interesting neck wriggle right before he's about to snap up a fish.
I hope your weekend is starting off swell too!
