If the Beautiful Great Blue Heron Sees His Shadow?
If the Great Blue Heron sees his shadow
Does it mean six more weeks of winter??
Yes, I know Ground Hog’s Day was a week ago. But in the true spirit of that whimsical movie, every day is Ground Hog’s Day all over again. And so, if the Great Blue Heron sees his shadow, do we get six more weeks of winter? I sure hope not.
Thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands and WordPress for this week’s WPC Challenge: Shadow.
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.

Love the mystery of the photo!
Thanks, Cindy – so glad you like this one. This photo was one of those ‘happy surprise photos’ that happened by accident. Best, Babsje
That’s a great shadow! 🙂 Not so very long till Spring? We can only hope!
Thanks for your kind words, Jo, glad you like this one. Ah, spring can’t get here a moment too soon! We had quite the blizzard here yesterday. Think spring! Best, Babsje
Wintry showers here, so not too serious 🙂
That’s good to hear, and Spring comes earlier to you there than here. And speaking of here, we are due for another foot of snow Sunday. Welcome to Winter in New England. Best, Babsje
It always seems counter-intuitive to me to suggest that if the Groundhog or in this case the Great Blue sees its shadow, that means 6 more weeks of winter… To me, it means it’s a sunny day. I guess I have to pay more attention to the shadow part. That is an interesting shadow!
Thanks for your great observation, Lisa. i agree that it seems counter-intuitive the way it works. I hope the Groundhog’s weather forecasting accuracy is as bad as that of the paid meteorologists on local tv. Glad you like the shadow! Best, Babsje
Many thanks, so glad you like this post! Best, Babsje
A beautiful capture!
Many thanks for your kind comment, Amy. So glad you like this one. Best, Babsje
