Great Blue Heron Along the Shore Nbr 2 – babsjeheron

For the month of March 2016, my Great Blue Heron photographs grace the walls of the lobby and theater in a free one-woman show at the Summer Street Gallery, of The Center for Arts in Natick. TCAN is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.

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.

  1. Welcome back, and al the best for the exhibition 🙂

    • Thanks for the welcome back! Right on schedule days after the start of spring, I’m coming out of hibernation. 🙂 Best, Babsje

      • I hope it will be a good spring for you and the herons 🙂

        • Thank you. We started out with snow on the first day of Spring. Haven’t seen any herons yet, but perhaps any day now. Wishing you and yours a happy spring, too.

          • Grey herons sometimes start nest building already in January. Are great blue herons different from that?

            • Here, the earliest I have seen nesting behavior from Great Blue Herons has been in late March – but the weather has a lot to do with it. This winter was unseasonably warm (due to El Nino) and so in late February, I observed a Robin’s egg that had fallen to the ground. It really was far too soon for tender eggs. I am hoping to get out with binoculars this weekend and see what the Herons are up to! Best, Babsje

  2. Babsje, great to hear from you again. Isn’t it fantastic that blue makes yellow brighter?

    • Hi Gary – Many thanks for your kind words and keen observation. Interestingly, in more than a decade of watching the herons in that cove, early autumn last year was the first time that patch of shoreline erupted with yellow blossoms and tall reeds. There is something about the drought and flood activity that allows for unexpected propagation of those flowering weeds. I like when that happens. Glad you like this landscape. Best, Babsje

  3. Just beautiful. Congratulations on the shows!

    • Hi Lisa – Glad you liked this Heron landscape, and thanks for your kind words about the photography show. It was an honor to be invited back for the second year in a row at the arts center, and I love sharing the Herons with people. Best, Babsje

  4. Congratulations on the shows! Good to find your post as I thought I had been missing them…which happens.

    • I’m so glad you like this one. Thanks for taking the time to post your kind comment. And I don’t think you had missed any posts – I’ve only recently emerged from some weeks of winter hibernation Best, Babsje
