Walking Tall on Thin Ice

Mr. Blue trying to blend in with the scenery

Two views of a blue Heron standing on ice and enjoying the sun.

  14. I haven't seen "my" heron that has been around here for some time. Perhaps he has come your way and there he is! They are very regal appearing aren't they?

  15. Both are wonderful images. I'm always amazed at how TALL herons are when I get close to them.
    Hugs and blessings,
