Beautiful Great Blue Heron Aloft Like the Mythical Phoenix

Great blue heron soaring upwards, like the mythical Phoenix.


Thanks to WordPress and Nancy for last week’s Photo Challenge Look Up.


I’m the Artist of the Month from July 1 through July 30, 2016, at the Summer Street Gallery, of The Center for Arts in Natick. The Great Blue Heron photographs once again grace the walls of the lobby and theater in a free one-woman show. 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.™
