Great Blue Heron Nesting Island Photographed In Falling Snow

© Babsje (

Great blue herons’ rookery island in falling snow just after sunrise.
Another winter view of the rookery island is here.


Thanks to Paula for her Thursday’s Special Non-Challenge Challenge. (This sunrise was a very special one.)

Thanks to Ed for his Sunday Stills: Letter F challenge. (The snow falling at dawn shrouded part of the scene with a fine mist.)

Thanks to Sue for her A Word a Week Photo Challenge: Waiting prompt. (I am waiting for the spring nesting season at the island rookery to start.)

Thanks to Ailsa for her Where’s My Backpack: Silver challenge. (The silver pre-dawn light is giving way to morning, and only the mist-shrouded frozen water retains its silvery hue.)


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.

Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.
