I waited and waited for the herons to take flight, hunt for fish, or do something – anything – fun, but alas.. They were perfectly happy to just sit still and enjoy the sun. One of them even folded its wings into an improvised deckchair, as if to make it very clear that there would be no action from their side today. Still, it was nice to watch them and get a lesson in patience
