I finally got a picture of big bird (and instagram lately)

As I was getting ready to go out the back door yesterday low and behold there was the big bird I have been trying to get a picture of for 3 years. I stopped and grabbed my iPhone and took his picture from the house. I think the guy has eyes in the back of his head and can hear a mile away. He takes off with the slightest movement or sound and I never have a camera handy when I have come upon him. I haven't had the greatest of timing. He's a fast little guy! I've been told it is a Grey Heron. There is a little pool of water in the creek where he is standing that has small fish in it and he comes down there to eat but he's terribly shy. Now if I can just get a picture of the redheaded woodpecker that's also camera shy :o)


My recent instagram pictures downloaded from my phone along with my big bird pictures so I thought I'd share those while I was at it.


I printed this next one for my newly redecorated bedroom which is shades of green and gold.  You can see it here.  I used an olive mat and black frame. I love it!


This is the newest member of our family, Fiona. She's a wild cat that has taken up residence. Doesn't help that I feed her everyday. I couldn't stand the thought of the little thing being hungry and now I do believe she thinks she's home :o)

Looking forward to capturing a picture of him in full flight. He has a huge wing span and is truly beautiful. Someday ♥


  1. I love it when wild animals just appear AND when I happen to have a camera on me! That bird looks awesome, what wonderful shots! And your kitty is so cute! (Maine Coon?)

    With love from San Francisco, California,

    1. When we first moved in we had to cut a bunch of trees and I had lots of animals just appear, including a family of skunks which I luckily didn't scare :o) We even had a beaver dam last year. I will have to find some old pictures.

      Thanks for stopping by!
