The heron is preening after spending most of the day on the nest. I could have cropped the picture much closer than I did but I wanted to show the nest. If you enlarge the pic to the largest size, you can see how intricate it is, and how many little perks there are for the kids. There’s shady spots, and even some strategically placed leaves to give a casual observer the impression of presence where there is none. If you come in really close, you can see at least one very small young heron in the picture. They’re really still too small to photograph coherently, but I know what I’m looking for so I keep at it, hoping for that one magic tiny great blue heron photo.
More to come…I’ve got over 1,000 shots but only a few worth publishing right now.
