…and a blue heron in a fir tree

Susan was looking out of a kitchen window when what to her wondering eyes should appear but a great blue heron flying across the street.  The bird took a right turn and flew up the driveway next to us, then parked in a fir tree where it remained for the rest of the day.

A neighbor with a telephoto lens observed that the bird appeared to have an injured shoulder.  Happy to report that when she saw it in the same tree a few days later it looked much better.  These pictures were taken from outside our dining room:

  1. We have so many herons in Florida that I almost forgot how incredible they really are when you get to see them up close. Familiarity breeds contempt, I suppose.

  2. Congratulations to the photographer and to spotter Susan.
