Hi Brian! Somehow you disappeared from my bloglist. Now you are on again.
I missed a lot but I checked out all posts with your great Pictures. Love them!

I see a lot of herons really, but when I see your pictures I see them better than I do in real life! Thanks.

Amazing! It always surprises me how well these birds can fish.

I am so far behind on posts. This guy/gal is wonderful. I so love the graceful curve of their neck. Hope to get out tomorrow to see how my herons are all doing!

Would not want to be the object of this stare! Something is getting ready to have a very bad day. . . Love how your camera "picks out" all the contrasting feather shapes and colors.
