Mackerel makes great sushi.

We have a great blue that comes wading up the creek behind my house on occasion. Flies low overhead seeing if the goldfish in my pond are large enough yet to eat. I think they grow 'em bigger down here, though.

You're saying that heron is a piker?

Beautiful creatures - even that pest, the bunny. That oh-so-pale-blue chicory flower is lovely.

The second great blue heron almost looks like a hydrofoil, Great picture.

Saw a large great blue flying overhead last night at dusk while walking the dog. For a flash, when I saw its silhouette coming over the top of the trees against the late sky (there was a rainbow, btw), I felt like it could've been a pterodactyl. It was a fantastic reaction, I know. But I had what must have been a primitive human's reaction: take the dog and get under a tree quick!

As The Who sez: 'I can't explain.'

Awesome wildlife shots, cute little bunny.

Chickory is good stuff- it's a nice bitter green that goes well with a pasta dressed with oil and garlic.

It's not quite as good as escarole, but it's good!

Lovely photos! But what is that blue bird over the lake? My mouse is silent on the subject!
