The Odd Couple (Five Photos)

There are more questions than answers in these photographs.


I bumped into this “odd couple” the same day I took the long range photographs of the Northern Flicker at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.


I have no idea why the Great Blue Heron and Woodchuck are hanging out together. I’m not exactly sure what the heron was hunting on bone dry terra firma. I certainly don’t know what disagreement occurred between the two. I mean, they wouldn’t even face one another.


I do know the woodchuck meandered off peacefully. Later the heron left quietly as well.
