Thought I would start blogging again. I'm not even sure what I want to blog about here. I guess just the Odds & Ends that come to my mind. I have not known how to get started. Today, I realized - why not just jump in? I decided, a photo would be a good ice breaker. I found this one I took last summer of a Great Blue Heron in the little pond out back.

I love these birds. One time, I happened to be sitting on the deck where I could see a blue heron and my binoculars were in hand. He stayed in the pond hunting frogs for a very long time - two hours and I stayed right there watching. He moved slowly, yet purposefully and patiently. He caught so many frogs I was afraid there would be none left. But of course, there were. I love these bird, and the frogs. Well, that's it for today.

Tina, I also love Blue Herons. They are such interesting birds and yes, they have the patience of Job. We have one that visits the canal here but you have to be there around 5am to see him. It's worth it.

Glad to see you blogging again.

I remember you mentioning the blue heron at the canal. I didn't realize that it was at 5 in the morning. LOL I agree, definitely worth it! :-)
