Catch Me If You Can
Thanks to Michelle W and WordPress for their Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrasts. These two herons are a year apart in age, and share the same parents and nest. The fledgling was only two or three days out of the nest at this time, and his very light coloring contrasts with the more mature plumage of the yearling.
Thanks once again to Stewart Monckton for hosting the Wild Bird Wednesday challenge.
Thanks to Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday challenge.
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.
