Blue Herons

Nefarious wanted to enter this month’s photo contest in chickaDEE so we went down to High Park where last time we’d been we saw a pair of extremely tame herons — we actually watched on catch a fish in front of us, from maybe five feet away. Anyway, all of these pictures were taken by her. She had a lot of fun sneaking up to get as close as she could for the photos, and then snapping wildly as they flew away.

    These photos are beautiful! They have a dreamlike quality about them. Herons are so wonderful. What a treat to get to watch a pair like this.

    There are herons in the river and in the swamp near the hiking trails I frequent here in Connecticut. I can never get a good look at them let alone a picture, they are extremely skittish and fly away if you get within 100 feet or so.
