Guys? Where are you? I’m ready for the party!


File this under silly fun with Herons!

For the months of September and October, the Great Blue Herons are featured on the walls of the Natick Town Hall, located at 13 East Central Street in Natick, MA. Feel free to stop in during office hours Monday thru Wednesday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm; Thursday 8:00 am – 7:00 pm; Friday 8:00 am – 12:30 pm

From May 1 through July 11, 2018, my Great Blue Heron photographs once again graced the walls of the lobby and theater in a free one-woman show at the Summer Street Gallery, of The Center for Arts in Natick. If you’re in the Boston or Metro West area, please stop by to see the Great Blue Herons. As always, many of the photos were taken on the waterways of the Charles River watershed. The gallery is open whenever the box office is open, so please check hours here.

Thanks to Erica V and WordPress for the recent WPC: Place in the World. My favorite place is where the Herons are, of course it is. And the Herons? Their place is near the water, but also on the gallery walls and my blog. How else can I share them with you?

Thanks to Cee N and WordPress for her Odd Ball Challenge. Welcome back from your vacation, Cee!

Thanks also to Ben H and WordPress for their WPC Challenge: Liquid. The Herons are drawn to water, as am I.

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. Congratulations on having your photographs featured at the Natick Town Hall. Hopefully you’ll attract even more defenders of these great birds. Best, G.

    • Hi Gary, Many thanks for your kind thoughts! The space at the Town Hall is something new and different for me because it is not a gallery, it is a working office building, the seat of our local government. One of the primary elections is tomorrow and it is interesting to see a Great Blue Heron hovering above sample ballots. Our local officials are good people and were helpful when I was hanging the photos. I’m a believer in supporting the community and am grateful for the invitation to show there. Best, Babsje

  2. Very special he is walking on a place where people live

    • Thank you! Yes, he is walking on their floating patio dock next to the water. I bet the people have lovely parties at those tables, watching the birds and boats float by. Best, Babsje

  3. Nice captures!

  4. Great photos of the heron. 😀

  5. We spotted a great blue heron perched upon our wood pile at the farmstead in central Maine a sentinel in all its glory last week… By the time I got the camera out, it was taking flight.

    • How fortunate that you had the Heron soooo close, and isn’t that the way it works? Fetching a camera so often results in fleeing wildlife! Thanks for visiting and commenting. Good luck with the Heron next time. Best, Babsje
