great blue heron beside brambles and dried grasses at the roadside today.

thanks also, Mary and Alex. Alex, yeah, - at one point there was something in the visor flapping on my head, a sheet of paper that I'd stashed there earlier,- got annoyed at that point, LoL - always so "organized" not.

Well done shot Alandra. My eye is directed right to the head and iris of the birds eye....:)

thanks Evelyn. quite often these herons fly away as soon as they see us stopping nearby, - that happened yesterday also. but for some reason, this one stayed where it was, - I didn't get out of the SUV, just shot this thru the open window (doing lots of contortions, twisting the opposite way in the seat lol)

What a great closeup of the fine bird. I have a few photos of these birds but none so close.

thanks also, Golda, somehow missed yours just now. Agree about words. Another one that a friend (also from England) mentioned years ago, is "hedgerow", - that's a nice word too, as well as Coppice or copse,as we used to say, when referring to a small wooded area.

thanks everyone, Janice, Carol, Steve & Don. Speaking of "brambles", Don, - guess that's my Brit heritage showing thru :) as I was born in England and lived there til 12 years old and recall going blackberry picking with my maternal grandma and coming home scratched to bits, purple fingers and lips :) but happy as all get out, with the bounty we'd gathered. Then it was blackberry & apple deep dish pies, and blackberry & apple jam- such a wonderful combination of flavours.

Gorgeous Alandra,this image could be a painting,great texture in both the feathers and the background.(brambles,thicket,brush)...lol are'nt words great?

Very pretty Heron capture Alandra!
Just thinking about something. We don't use the word bramble down here. You rarely hear it, and it is such a nice word. Odd thing isn't it? Don
