Fishing with the Great Blue Heron

A Great Blue heron

I was reading about a young man, that I remember as Dave, who was catfishing along a local slough. Dave was sitting on the bank having some pretty good luck and catching a lot a fish. As he was pulling them out, he was laying them beside himself on the shore.
It was very quiet and calm as he sat there enjoying the cool of the morning. And then at some point, Dave heard some rustling noise behind him; he turned around to look but there was just a wall of tules. He returned to fishing, and then he heard it again. ” What in the world…!” Again he looked around; there was nothing there.
He continued fishing; and as the morning sun began to warm him up, he began to become a little drowsy. And then, all of a sudden, a loud ” squawking” noise startled him from his half-sleep; he  turned to see this huge Great Blue heron making a get-away with the largest of the catfish!
My experience was a little more mundane as I captured this photo.
