"Catch" of the Day

Heron at Low Tide

We're having abnormally low tides at the moment, and it was the lowest I've ever seen it on my walk this afternoon along the Westsong way. Maybe tough for the otters, but the birds seemed to be enjoying it, and I saw three of these chaps on the walk. Of course, me without my "good" camera, but at least the Zeiss glass in my little point-and-shoot did a good job on this shot. If you have time to click through to my Flickr site, it looks even better large.

WIN!

Besides loving the pictures, I'm so glad to see you're taking these walks and giving yourself some time.

What a lovely photo - I'm guessing it's some type of heron? Beautiful!

Gorgeous photo of a superb bird. Is it an egret of some kind?
