Beautiful Great Blue Heron Photos of the Year
And the winner selected by popular vote?
Great Blue Heron Fishing at Waterfall
Frequent readers here know that my photos are an eclectic mix: some have more merit as Art – capital A – than others, some are quirky captures just for fun. Some are personal anecdotes of encounters, and some the field notes of a naturalist. One thing they all have in common, though, is the birds are all wild creatures observed in nature along the waterways of Eastern Massachusetts.
As 2017 was winding to a close, Ben H and WordPress asked about our favorite photos posted in 2017. As an artist, I’m always curious about what you, the readers, appreciate, and so I posted a poll on New Year’s Eve for your feedback. You can click here to see the photos included or even vote. (It’s not too late to participate)
The photo at the top of today’s post had the greatest percentage of votes, and as you can see from the results below, second place had a three-way tie, and there was a five-way tie for third.
Thankfully there were no calls for a recount of any votes and voting wasn’t plagued by any hanging chads.
A big THANK YOU to all who voted.
(And if you didn’t vote yet, now’s your chance.)
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.
