The Chase

Close to where I live there is a Great Blue Heron who taunts me. Now I realize it’s probably in my mind. Whenever I approach him to gain a picture, as with a sixth sense, he flies away. I have tested the limits of stealth and preparedness but still he eludes me. This picture isn’t of my nemesis, but it could be a mug shot. I will be vigilant in my quest.
