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 ♥
