Beautiful Great Blue Heron Winging Across the Waters

Great blue heron wings her way across the lake.


Thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands and WordPress for today’s daily prompt Journey. This Great Blue Heron with a broken leg wings her way on an unknowable journey.

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

Thanks also to Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday challenge.


From July 1 through July 30, 2016, my Great Blue Heron photographs once again 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 has a lively, dynamic lineup of upcoming performing artists.


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.

Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™

    • Hi Tish – Thanks so much. It’s a labor of love and I’m grateful to have been given the opportunity to show the Great Blue Herons to the community here. Best, Babsje

  6. Babsje, I find this image very moving. Aren’t we all in flight, dragging something broken and therefore, in need of each others kindness?

  7. It’s imposant looking to his flight over the water
