Mosaic Monday - Herons




On Friday Don got off work early again - he works a lot of longer days early in the week so we can have Friday afternoon together.  The sun was shining and the temperatures were fairly warm.  So we decided on a ride out on the Lummi Peninsula - one of our favorite rides.

The peninsula sits across the bay from Bellingham and the views are always spectacular.


Along the bay we spotted a heron, standing on a rock.  He was not as close as I would have liked - but with my new camera I got some excellent shots.  Then a little farther down the bay there was another heron on the beach - they are such amazing birds - and these two really posed for me. Thank you herons.

Blue herons are amazing birds. We've had them come into our backyard pond to do a little fishing.

I am always amazed at how those skinny legs can hold up that size of a bird. Great mosaic!

I think I will come back as a bird if they get to look at views like that all day. Nice mosaic.
