I was taking pictures of roseate spoonbills — regrettably, too far away to be great shots — and I turned around just in time to catch a great blue heron in a pond on the other side of the road, just as he was just in time to catch his next snack.
Photo Memory of the Week
Poetry of the WeekA wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican!
