End of the Day Heartjumps



This heron sometimes tucks himself into the high grasses at the foot of my dock in the early evening waiting for dinner, and a few times, in my eagerness to capture a lovely sunset I startle him and then he startles me.  We have got to stop doing that to each other before one of us has a heart attack!

That sunset made my heart go thump too, Tabor.

That shot was well worth near heart failure.

Tabor, very very beautiful, especially the sunset. :)

I do know how startling it can be. And yes, I agree with Barry: well worth the risk, that shot!

Hi Tabor, Great picture of your friend--even if you two startled each other. The sunset is amazing---worth being out there for!!!!!

Hope you are doing okay today.
Hugs,
Betsy

Tabor, you live in paradise.
I almost envy you. I am down the gravel road surrounded by unmanicured woods! What wonderful wild life you can capture with your camera. Have a great day.
A dusting of snow in my area.

Just for a short second there I thought you'd snapped a pic of a freakin' PTERODACTYL, but no, just a scary heron. And your sunset is spectacular indeed.

Lovely shots. Herons are very special to me. You're blessed by having one as regular visitor. :)

And here I was about to tell Frank about this post and he beat me to it. Great shots, Tabor. You are indeed very lucky. :)

quite a stunning sunset photo, tabor.

Wow! Amazingly beautiful photos, both. What luck to catch the heron in flight. Well worth the heart stopping adrenalin rush :)
