A Hair-Raising Moment
Thanks to Krista and WordPress for their Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’. I love slipping the kayak into a natural-cover hide in a secluded cove and waiting for wildlife to arrive. On hot summer days, this Great Blue Heron often swoops down from the canopy and preens for hours on the half-submerged logs. When the wind is perfect,I’m able to stay with him for a long time, hidden from view, camera in hand. The peace there is profound.
Thanks once again to Stewart Monckton for hosting the Wild Bird Wednesday challenge.
Thanks to Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday challenge.
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.
