Cat Got Your Tongue?
Not likely with a tongue like this!
This week, Ben and WordPress challenged us to show you TONGUE. The photo here shows a great blue heron fledgling licking his lips, erm licking his bill after downing a small fish.
As you can see, a heron’s tongue is as long as their very long bill, and…
Oh, wait, not what Ben meant by showing tongue?
As dear Emily Litella used to say on the original SNL, “Nevermind.”
What Ben actually meant was for us to speak about what language we would wish to be fluent in.
I would choose to be fluent in “Heron,” and have already learned three words from their vocabulary:
Arrrrh, arrrrh, arrrrh
I wrote about learning arrrrh earlier, click here.
Thanks to Ben Huberman and WordPress for the Daily Prompt: TONGUE.
A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.
Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.
