The Black Heron also known as the Black Egret, is found south of the Sahara Desert, including Madagascar, and prefers shallow open waters, such as the edges of freshwater lakes and ponds.
The Black Heron has an interesting hunting method called canopy feeding— it hunches over and spreads its wings just like an umbrella, thereby creating a shady patch to block sunlight allowing them to see better. It also lulled fish into a false sense of security by making them think that either night has fallen or the shady area is a safe refuge.
Nature is remarkable.
John F. Kennedy in SI, 1960
I was going through the garage of an estate sale this morning, and happened upon this old issue of Sports Illustrated. It’s from 1960 (the ad on the back references NBC’s coverage of “The NFL Championship Game”), and then-President-Elect John F. Kennedy on the ocean at Hyannisport.
For you prep fetishists, it’s close to perfection, but it’s a lovely lesson for the rest of us, too. Not much more than a blue polo, khakis, some canvas topsiders and a cotton sweater (or a tweedy sportcoat) are enough for the future president to look stunning.

This was my birthday last year. God I love hen island.
