Herons on the Marsh
Not the best of photos (I need a bigger lens!), but I was thrilled to see one of these herons come in wings spread wide for a sweeping landing in the marsh. I’ve never spotted more than one heron at a time. Perhaps they’re a mating pair?
On my return trip, passing the marsh again I saw the herons were still there, so I did another “drive-by” shot out the driver’s window.
It wasn’t until I got home that I realized what I thought was a log was actually a third heron.
Yup – it looks like I need my eyesight checked (or a bigger lens!). Just last week, on a foggy morning I stopped to photograph a moose. Turns out what I thought was a moose’s antlers was really the roots of a tree that had toppled over!
