Nature Walks – The Heron and the Squirrels

Today, while out on my walk, I thought I wasn’t going to see anything. The lakes were beautiful, but they were very quiet and still. At first, I thought all I was going to see were rocks.

I would have enjoyed my walk either way, but seeing my “friends” come out certainly made my day. When I least expected it, a blue heron flew right beside me. I almost didn’t get this shot. I was more than a little surprised to see him fly by and didn’t have my camera ready. You don’t realize how big they are until you see their wingspan.

This is how I see the herons most of the time, although this guy looks a bit angry. Maybe he was just as surprised to see me too. I guess I invaded his space.

Maybe if I just close my eyes, she will go away.

Here, he seems to be smiling again.

The tall wild grasses always looks so pretty as they dance in the breeze.

There were even a few friendly squirrels who came out to play today too.

Life is short. Enjoy it while you can.

    1. That picture was just pure luck, as are most of my “great” shots. Most of the time I don’t realize what I capture until after I start editing my pictures. They definitely like their space, as I am finding to be true for most of our bigger water birds.
