And a more classic pose. Thank you, heron!
For Wordless Wednesday.
Oh, there! This is a yellow crowned night heron. I also photographed a juvenile along Riverwalk, but this adult was in the busy section at 5 pm. About 30 feet up in a tree, but not otherwise hidden. There are ducks and pigeons and sparrows along Riverwalk, but it seems that the herons are thriving too. Bravo for this strip of nature that runs through the city like an oasis, winding among the streets.
For photrablogger’s Mundane Monday #127.
I left San Antonio on Sunday. I was reading and writing at the hotel, inside and out, and spotted this small resident. She was hanging out on the Riverwalk side of the hotel and was quite cooperative for photographs.
Prayers for a friend on Puerto Rico and for all the people and creatures there and in the paths of the other hurricanes and storms.
For the Daily Prompt: sting. But no, I am wrong, I don’t think this insect has a sting, at least not for people! We do worry about insects having stingers, but insects are also our great pollinators.
Sending love to and in celebration of insects.
Oh! We need a better view! Turn, bird! I can’t wade out into the river here!
Turning a little….
