Photo by Jonathan Williams, April 21, 2008
Artist Jonathan Williams sent me this photo of a great blue heron with its catch, flying away to enjoy. (Will you be having the lizard today or mouse?) The picture was taken in Elysian Park, near Scott Avenue -- a couple of hundred yards away from the site of a film-set commotion last week, which included BB lights (read, big, bright and bright), nighttime shoots, with working animals like raccoons and dogs.
Well, this bird appears to be self-employed. And free, within the limits of urban confines.
