Heron Blues

Uploaded: October 02, 2008


I thought this Heron made a nice accessory to this blue dock... much easier to capture when they are standing still too. :)

Don't know how I missed this one, great capture Richard and yes much easier to catch sitting still. I didn't have much luck in catching any in flight, well caught them but blur you know hehe. Hope you and the family are well. #6775821

Thanks Cassie, it's always good to hear from you! You might have caught some blurry pictures (lets not forget the tons of great pics you did get!), but having you around sure did sharpen our joy on Caddo Lake!! :) #6776972
