  1. A beautiful, patterned, artistic feather. Just waiting for you, before taking its final swim.
    I love herons; by the beach we see them perched precariously on palm trees, an odd sight. Once, we saw egrets on the beach – an island of kelp had washed in, and they were making a very lush breakfast of it.

  2. Thanks, Aubrey, it was well worth the effort crouching down, leaning forward suspended on one hand, to see and photograph the feather at close quarters. Glad to share the view.Every time I see a great blue heron in flight, I see their reptilian ancestors. I also love watching them, and other large birds, slow for a landing… their great wings extended and cupped, full of air, just before they stop and alight.
