Beautiful Great Blue Heron in the Rain for Wordless Saturday

© Babsje (



Thanks to CosmicGirlie for hosting Silent Sunday.

Thanks to Ed Prescott for the Sunday Stills: Favorite prompt. (No secret that great blue herons are a favorite model of mine.)

Thanks to Ailsa for the Weekly Travel Theme: Fragrant. (The Great Blue Heron seemed to be smelling the fragrant flowers there in the cove in the rain that morning.)

A thank-you to Michelle for the Weekly Pet Challenge Roundup nudge.

Thanks once again to Stewart Moncton for the Wild Bird Wednesday prompt.

Thanks to the kind folks at NaBloPoMo for the National Blog Posting Month challenge this November.


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.

Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™

  1. Nice looking bird – I do like the layer of green on the water.

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne

    • Thanks, Stewart, glad you like it. At certain times of the summer, that area of the cove experiences that lovely green algae bloom, and when it mingles with the duckweed there, the result is a lush green carpet floating on the water. Fortunately it isn’t the toxic sort of algae!

  2. This is a gorgeous picture, Babsje! Thanks for sharing and for taking part. 🙂

  3. I love this capture 🙂 I love photographing birds
