Marvelous bird capture, Dick! I've never seen herons do this before and I have spent all week in Florida at rookeries! Many congratulations on a really fine Finalist!

Thanks to all, Patrick, Carol and Rona, thanks for taking the time to drop me a note. Gee Rona you should have let me know you were in our fair state I would have taken you to my private heronry. But I must admit, in all the time I spend with the birds, and it is appreciable, I have never seen this gesture before. There were also a few other gestures I saw and captured early on in the new couples mating that took me by surprise. We watched a pair of potential mates for seven days of cat and mouse before she accepted him and then the gesture found on my wildlife gallery entitled "The Mating Ritual" occurred. Never had I seen that.

Thanks again to all.
