Saturday Snapshot




 Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home with Books. To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.


I posted a few photos of this great blue heron on Wednesday.  Here's the reason we could get so close up to him. The heron spotted the fisherman and figured he could get a fish the lazy way. Some of the fishermen at the pond feed the herons with their catch. We were right behind the bird taking his photo at the same time the fisherman decided to take a couple of shots too.

I never get tired of seeing these majestic birds with their distinctive feathers.


You're supposed to be fishing, not gawking at me.















Rockin' the casual windblown look!

  17. I love watching these birds. They are so majestic as they pose and watch for a fish. And then when one of them flies off and lands in a tree I can't help laughing... it just looks so weird to see those big legs standing on a branch!

  23. Awesome photos -- and so cool you could get so close, even if it was on account of the bird being a lazy fisherman.
