  1. Chuckles! You certainly catch them herons doing the most amazing things! 🙂

    • Thanks! The GBH absolutely strutted the length of the dock, then back up onto the property, then back down the dock and struck a pose next to the for sale sign. It was just like a runway stroll, lol.

  2. LOL:-) You always know what to put with each picture to make me chuckle…vanna white, perfect!

  3. Tremendous shot. Made me laugh which is always good on a dreary old morning.

  4. I love stuff like this! Good eye to spot and photograph this scene.

    • Many thanks for saying that, Phil. It was fun that day watching the heron strut along the dock and strike a few poses. Sometimes they’re big hams. Sometimes I think the birds know when we’re watching closely and they ham it up.

  5. Reigers observeren is een heel leuke bezigheid.Doe ik ook graag.

    • Hi MaryLou. Yes, watching Herons can be a lot of fun! I’m glad you like to watch the Grey Herons there where you live. Thanks for your kind comment. Best, Babsje
