If you were silent
Flight of herons on dark sky...
Oh! Autumn snowflakes!

My dog Lucy has turned me into a birdwatcher. When I take her for walks around our neighborhood pond, I often see the resident great blue heron. Sometimes I see a green heron or two. During the winter, I may see hooded merganser ducks. Recently, I spotted what looked like a snake bird, a cormorant, and a little blue heron, all passing through. I wish they would stay a bit longer.

Herons are so cool...loved the selection of photos/art.

The heron with the frog made me laugh, and "Flummoxed" held my attention for quite a while. :-)
