The Heron of Queen Lucas Lake

 Went walking on the end of the Fish Lake trail which takes you right past Queen Lucas Lake. The water was way down in the lake. Most of the end with the boggy marsh was dry. A blue Heron was hunting  in the little bit of march that was still wet. He was so excited when he caught a turtle. Then the hard work began for him, trying to get into the turtle shell to enjoy his meal. He jumped, ran and did all manner of contortions trying to get in. I'm not sure wether he ended up dropping it or swallowing it whole as it was gone but I'm not sure were. He was off for a quick rinse off and to look for something else, maybe a frog, that would be easier to eat.
