About This Image

great blue heron with a stick in its beak, taking it to the nest it is building. The herons were going back and forth, from the area where the sticks are, to their nests. They are quite wary at this time.
Wasn't able to get very close, as the area is surrounded by water at this time, but it was interesting watching the herons from a distance, pulling at the sticks and flying away with them.

thankyou Karen, glad you like the bird pics :) This is a bird watcher's paradise, so it's hard not to want to get the images. One camera shop employee told me that my camera is "a workhorse", (didn't buy it from them) - and have often thought of his words.

thanks Steve, yes, that's true. They are magnificent birds, am in awe of them and their wonderful/awesome ability in manoevering around the tree branches to get into their nests etc. -- great to watch them

I love the wings in this shot, Alandra. They seem to me to look both fragile and powerful at the same time.
