Watching a White Heron

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

This bird was fairly young, but still a beauty. It was in the little pond where I saw the baby Ducks. I have never seen a Heron shake its body like this. Kind of funny.

It was a curious bird as well.

Sparrow in our shrub.

This Bee was full as can be, but still collecting goods.

Have a good Tues!

    Heron all ways look as if they are cold and are huddled up.

Very nice to get that close to them, well done Jeanne

    Your usual fabulous photos - the heron all fussed up while shaking out was a particularly cool picture - but your photos are always super. Hope you're having a fabulous day/week!

    I think that Heron was doing all his tricks just for you!!! For the camera, that is!!! Cute little sparrow and oh boy!!! what a busy, busy little bee!!! Your sunflowers are still looking spectacular!!
So sorry your temps only dipped a few degrees, but at least it dropped you out of the triple digits for a bit! Hope you get some real relief soon. Did you get any rain at all? The weather map made it look like maybe you did.
Hope you have a wonderful day!! ((HUGS))
