I was sitting in my study working on my computer, probably typing a blog post, when something large and flying low out the window caught my eye. Is that the hawk again?
I run for my camera, hurry back, and start shooting pictures out of my study window. I ‘m pretty sure it’s a Blue Heron, but I need to look closer.
I put my telephoto lens on and, yes! It is a Blue Heron in the grass across the drive. But that sign post is right in the way.
I run into Anna’s room to get a better angle. Oh darn. Now the bush is in the way.
I very slowly sneak outside onto the porch and am able to get a clear shot. (Disclosure. The sign post was in this picture to the right side of the heron, but I photoshopped it out.)
Is she trying to go into the woods?
I really don’t know what this bird is doing in our yard.
I try to get a closer picture and step off the porch and onto the sidewalk, but I stumble on the edge of the walk. My quick movement startles the Blue Heron and she takes to flight,
