Great Blue Heron Pose Only a Mother Could Love: Not Art Nbr 5
Thanks to Michelle W and WordPress for this week’s WPC Challenge: Fun. The photo here may show the Heron with what looks like a funny expression, but she was being quite serious at the time. A fisherman was plying the water in her territory that day, and she used this territorial display in an effort to chase him off. Other birds are adept at reading Heron body language, but fishermen? Not so much. That day, the fisherman ignored her threatening pose, which ultimately was lucky for the Heron: at the end of the day, she was rewarded when he tossed a 2-foot long Pike her way.
From July 1 through July 30, 2016, I was the Featured Artist of the Month at the Summer Street Gallery. The Great Blue Heron photographs once again graced the walls of the lobby and theater in a one-woman show at The Center for Arts in Natick. In addition to the visual arts shown at the gallery, 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.
