Great Blue Heron Using Wings for Wordless Saturday
Thanks to the kind folks at NaBloPoMo for the National Blog Posting Month challenge this November. (Today is the final day of NaBloPoMo, so congrats to all who participated by posting every day during November,)
Thanks once again to Stewart Moncton for the Wild Bird Wednesday prompt.
Thanks to Ailsa for the Weekly Travel Theme: Sky. (The heron reaches for the sky with wings to create shadows on the water’s surface, then stands stock still until the fish are tricked by the shadows.)
Thanks also to Sue for the Word a Week Challenge: High. (Holding wings high casts shadows on the water that lure in the fish, they fall for it repeatedly.)
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.™
