My world Tuesday

For my world I have these two pictures I made yesterday in a park. There was this heron sitting there, I made photo's getting nearer and nearer till he saw us and flew away. Got him in the act in picture two.

 

 
For more My World photo's go here. There is a list of all the participants

Hoi Riet,

Ik zie zojuist het mozaiek van je kerstversieringen. Wat ziet het er mooi uit! Leuk ook om je op je nieuwe foto te zien. Je staat er goed op!!!

Fijne avond!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Thank you for welcoming me home Riet! I am indeed lucky that there is SYYPE these days and videos I can watch over the computer...it helps quite a bit to close the gap of being far away from my grandson.

I always love to see herons fly! They look almost prehistoric. Nice photos!

Hoi Riet,

Mooi zijn ze die reigers en ook behoorlijk brutaal. Van de week zag ik hier in het dorp iemand vissen en er zat een rijger pal naast hem. Heel koddig om te zien, en hij dacht waarschijnlijk de slimmerik, als hij een visje vangt is hij voor mij.

Lieve groet Josephine

Altijd leuk om te zien. Bij ons krioelt het hier van de reigers. Echter heel moeilijk om ze op foto te krijgen.

Always enjoy your posts for My World, Riet! And these are no exception! What lovely birds!

Hope you have a great week!

Oh, and I really like your new photo of you! You're a very lovely woman!

I love these heron photos...such a large bird...

How nice to see the blue herons are still in your area. Or perhaps they don't migrate south as the ones here in Canada do.

Photo Cache said...

They are a nervous bunch in my experience. Without those long lens and only with a point and shoot camera, I rarely get a good image of them. You got it there.

He look like he ready 2 get heself a fish!

The close ups of the blue heron are gorgeous, Riet. We have them here also and they look so graceful when they fly.

sissie said...

Amazing that you have blue heron there too. We have them all over the place here on the coast. Such lovely birds. Love your photos.

SandyCarlson said...

So very, very beautiful. There is peace in every aspect of these birds. Thank you for making it available to us.

Rajesh said...

The snaps of the bird are very beautiful.

Marvin said...

Herons have always been one of my favorite birds. You did a great job of capturing this one with pixels.

You really got that bird - well done. Are herons rare around where you live?

Hoi Riet,
Mooi die reigers, die kunnen zo lang geconcentreerd wachten tot ze eindelijk beet hebben.
groetjes Jannet

Oja Riet, heb jij mij toevallig een e-mail gestuurd gisteravond? Jij bent de enige Riet die ik ken. Een mysterie dat waarschijnlijk zo opgelost is ;-)

Hi Riet, wij hebben hier aan de sloot ook een reiger. Een beetje een sufferd, hij is volgens ons kippig of oud of allebei. Hij prikt nogals eens mis als hij vist. Hij is wel weer goede vriendjes met de hond. Grappig hè? Mooie foto's. Zie je hoe goed hij kleurt bij de omgeving?

The herons are great subjects - I look for them often at our Boggs Lake.

Riet, I once was able to walk up real close to a swan which as sitting on the shore of a pond. This is a beautiful shot! :)

June said...

Hello dear Riet,
the blue Heron is such a beautiful bird. I've only seen one in the wild once. This is wonderful that you were able to get up to him so close.
I received my beautiful card from you today in the mail. You can imagine my joy when I saw that beautiful lace ornament. What a wonderful thing for you to do dear friend. My husband was as excited as I was, to see something from so far away from such a beautiful land. Thank you so very much.
hugs

They are shy and wary, you got some good shots there.
