Mind your Mother~

“I’m watching you!”

This Night Heron spent some time watching me intently,

and then went back,

to catching crabs!

He caught a few,

and then hopped down,

and joined me on my picnic table.

I think he hoped I’d share my lunch.

Cheers to you & Happy Mother Earth Day from the people watching heron~

    • Aren’t they stunning. The combination of colors on this bird are especially striking, and then they have that white plume lure feather. No wonder they often stare at themselves in still water! πŸ˜‰

  4. As usually, sharp and beautiful set. When I see in the birds or animal eyes, it seems to me they understand everything, but ignore us to talk.
