I spy a few herons   1 comment

Spotted a few herons that, uncharacteristically, sat in a tree (do you see them in the first picture?) rather than stalking their prey in the muddy marsh below.

Fortunately they stayed there until I got close enough to take these shots:

  1. Great spotting, Lutz! Love that cloud photo, too. Those are Great White Egrets, which, like Great Blue Herons, roost and nest in trees – it is safer there!
