Great blue heron fledgling wondering where he put his glasses, erm dragonfly.


File this one under just for fun!


Thanks to Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday challenge.

Thanks to Ese for her Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge: Memories prompt. “Now,,where did imput my glasses, erm dragonfly?” the heron asked, wondering where his memory has gone. Often, I wonder about their memories, the herons.

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

Thanks again to Cee for the Fun Foto Challenge prompt.

Thanks again to Michelle for the Weekly Pet Roundup prompt.


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.

    • I’m so glad you like it! I felt fortunate to be in the right place at the right time for this one. No worries about a week off from the challenge, but hope you can get some R&R time for yourself once home from the road. Best, Babsje

  11. Terrific shot of my favorite bird!

  12. Dragonflies do land on anything. Good thing the Heron was preoccupied!
