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:

Driving through Montana I am always fascinated by the wide open spaces, probably because there aren’t many in Connecticut. The bottom one is of the battlefield of the Little Bighorn, site of Custer’s Last Stand.

Forest Fire Aftermath   Leave a comment
