Heron Happy









The woods were made for the hunters of dreams,
The brooks for the fishers of song;
To the hunters who hunt for the gunless game
The streams and the woods belong.

  8. Lovely shots Jackie. This is the type of birds we see at our boat. Well all over the delta in fact. Lovely graceful birds they are too.

  12. Hi Jackie, I just found your comment on my CC post a while back and wanted to thank you for stopping by. I love these photos you've taken. I also want to thank you for following me, I have done the same for you and also put you on my blog-roll blog.

    I found it very interesting that your daughter teaches 19th and 20th century British Literature. And that you have an interest in English history. I am enjoying reading about it all myself and am relearning what I have forgotten years ago.

    Thanks again for visiting me. I look forward to coming back here.

  14. Love the quote...but the heron images are best!!! They are difficult to photograph in flight...you did yourself proud!!!

  20. The birds on the wing look wonderful! But especially adore Mr Grim Long Feather in the first photo! He cuts a mean reflection!

  21. Awesome reflection in your first photo! Thanks for coming to my blog with your comment on pastel. I would say, pastel satisfies my desire for drawing. And I work slow, with many layers:)

  24. Back again! In answer to your comments (on my Fur and Wings blog) about muzzles on dogs, I have only seen them twice in all my time of taking photos! Both times involved a very crowded place. The first time was at Mornington street markets and the second time was yesterday when thousands crowded the Dromana foreshore for Australia Day celebrations. I can only presume, in both cases, it was a precautionary measure with so many people and so many divergent sounds around.
    And thank you for your thoughts!

    1. Thanks for stopping back over Gemma with that information. It would be the same here in this country in a large gathering. At least in the larger cities anyway.

      I use to always muzzle my German Shepherd when I took him to the Vet. as a precaution!

  26. Beautiful pictures, It makes me feel free when I look at them! Thanks for all your comments on my blogs last week, I love hearing from you Jackie, your the sweetest and the more I know you the more I realize how much we have in common. I also suffered abuse as a child, have anxiety and some fear still with certain situations. I appreciate your openness, because in sharing we bring each other comfort. Thank you for that!
    Hope all is well,
    Hugs,
    Janet :)
