Between having the flu Fri and yesterday and violent thunderstorms that knocked out my electricity, I didn’t blog. Is this like the dog ate my school paper???
We were lucky we didn’t have any tornadoes in the are like some places did. Feeling better today, but still no appetite. Which is a good thing, isn’t it? Still nauseous though, and that’s no fun.
But this was what I meant to show when I took my walk to see the purple irises but went the wrong way–a green heron (thought it was a snakebird), but when I looked up the pictures of closer shots on the internet for snakebirds–it wasn’t right. The coloration is the same as a green heron. He “reels” in his neck and so it looks like he doesn’t have a long neck.
These are the best pictures I’ve ever gotten of one. He was right down below me on the bank of the pond, but I hadn’t seen him and I startled him. I was trying to get a picture of a great white heron across the pond. So the green heron flew up onto the rock wall. Then when he realized I wasn’t coming after him and he was still hungry, he flew down to the big boulders and made his way back to the water. I took a few more pictures, one of him as a reflection in the water, and then left him in peace. 🙂 <3
Despite being sick and not turning on my PC all day yesterday because of the continuing storms, I did manage to add 1300 words to the story. Seven hundred words short, but I’ll try to make that up today.
Off to write! Have a great day!!!
