Years ago, I gathered these great blue heron aigrette feathers, which I treasure.
Here’s a graceful post about posessing feathers in The View From Kestrel Hill.

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Owl?

It looks like this particular heron was asleep in class the day they taught “Fear of Owls 101.”

Thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands and WordPress for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Object. Cheri challenged us this week with the word “object.” In this photo, property owners had placed a “scarecrow” owl as a “fear object” to deter herons from their dock.

Thanks also to the kind folks at Wordless Saturday.
