Beautiful Great Blue Heron to Warm your Eyes

Great Blue Heron in Warmer Days – babsjeheron

While the weather outside is frightful,
time travel back and escape to a warm summer day.

On days like this, I enjoy escaping into the photo archives with the Great Blue Herons, where it’s endless summer and not sub-zero.

It’s an eye-warming experience.

Not to mention heart-warming.


Thanks to Ben H and WordPress for the recent WPC challenge: 2017 Favorites. Ben asked us to share our most meaningful photos from 2017. If you didn’t get a chance to see them, click here to vote early, vote often. Given the frigid, treacherous weather much of North America has been enduring, the photo of this Great Blue on a warm June day is a reminder of warmer times to come.

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 for my third 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.

Through July 13, 2017 I was a Featured Artist 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. Beautiful picture of Heron.Came back from Florida ,didn’t see a blue heron.

  2. Beautifully captured! 🙂

  3. What a lovely reminder of warmer days! They will come again! It seems to be smiling at us with a mischievous look.

    • I love your interpretation – the mischevious look. One of my sinful pleasures in deep winter is visiting the “perpetual summer” of my Heron photo archives. Thanks for your kind words. And if I’m not mistaken you had snow there in Texas some weeks back. Best, Babsje

  4. That is a beautiful capture, Y!!
