    Awesome moments like these have great eraser potential for other little things (like bad roads, high gas expense, poor industry) around here. Wonderful stuff. Thanks for posting.

    I can't believe he stood still long enough for me to grab the camera and changed lenses. Too bad it's a tad out of focus though. Still! We only ever get blue herons here, and rarely at that.

    Pretty pic. We have a huge one on our pond today. It was sitting on a stump all evening and would preen. We get the a blue one occasionally, but its the 2nd time this big white one has come back.

    Are they both Herons? or Cranes? or are they the same thing. The white one that visits occasionally is bigger than the blue one.

    I think they're actually called a white egret, but I could be mistaken. I know they're not uncommon, I've just never seen one. I would love to be able to capture a good shot of the hawks we have flying overhead, but I don't have a big enough lens for that, darn it!

    No Cabinfever, it's a Heron... or a White Egret... at least I'm 99% certain it is, hehe
     
  20. I think it's actually called a snowy egret.... we have them around here in nebraska...
