Cape Gazette WEATHER TUESDAY, JUNE 24- THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 2008 Sl " WILD DELAWARE "KEVIN FLEMING One Intent Fisherman COLORFUL GREEN HERONS are one of my fa- vorite birds to photograph. They are such intent fisherman you can feel their concentration as they crouch in the shadows and on branches waiting for an unlucky fish to swim by. This year- old green heron was watching the water from a log just above the surface. When he spotted a fish he would pounce. Every Tuesday, the Cape Gazette will feature one of Kevin Fleming's new wildlife photographs taken for his book /Vild Delaware," which will he published in November. To see his photographs on a daily basis, visit his website www.wilddelaware.com.
