I Have a Heron
Monkey on My Back
Your lights are on, but you’re not home
Your mind is not your own…
Addicted to Love
…Might as well face it,
I’m addicted to…
Today, WordPress asked whether there’s something we can’t get enough of.
For me, that would be Great Blue Herons. With nearly a decade spent observing them, and more than 100,000 photos of them under my belt, could one say I’m addicted? Perhaps I do have a “monkey on my back,” but all for a good cause.
I’m passionate about them, and am hopeful to see their continued population growth in the watershed here, and to ensure the health and protection of their habitat.
The sidebar on this blog lists important resources for protecting herons and other birds. If you’re interested or a birder or nature photographer, please spend a couple of moments to learn more.
Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.
Thanks to Michelle W. for the Daily Prompt: Can’t Get Enough.
