The Night Heron and The Green Iguana: A Dock-u-Drama

The images aren't the greatest, but the series is highly entertaining. Click here for musical accompaniment.

A juvenile night heron flew from the dock to the beach to check out a green iguana in the surf.
 The heron was startled when the iguana started walking.
 It flew over the iguana and
 onto the dock
where it would be safe as it watched the iguana.
 The iguana came closer and closer,
 finally disappearing under the dock.
 Unbeknownst to the heron, the iguana emerged on the other side of the dock
and just kept going.
The heron still searches, knowing the iguana is out there somewhere.

  1. Fantastic story Wilma, sooo funny.
    We get the odd single Night Heron here in Kent most years.

  2. It took the night heron ages to realize that the iguana had come out the other side! But by then it was out of sight.
    We have lots of night herons, mostly yellow crowned, but some black crowned too. Not sure which this juvenile is. They usually stay on the Monkey River or Black Creek behind our place, but they like the sea when it is flat and calm.

    1. I could hardly hold the camera steady enough to take the pictures, I was laughing so hard. I just love how the hight heron sticks its neck out farther and farther to try to see under the dock.
