Caught mid-gronk


The Great Blue Heron is fairly visible — yet it is listed as locally vulnerable. It is almost always silent — yet it was photographed mid-gronk.

In one’s imagination, the raspy¬†gronk of the heron is atavistic: the call of the pterodactyl.

    I love the gronk. The babies look just like a dinosaur, kind of scary. If these things were the size of a pterosaur we would all be running for our lives whenever we saw one.
