Around the corner

After clearing away the cob webs, I noticed that the kayak had drifted toward the Leacock Villages.
I was not alone.






This is rather close and I suspected that the heron might be a juvenile. I do not know of any nearby, say within 10lm, heronry. Maybe somebody would comment?

It was not bothered by my presence as I drifted closer. It was busy preening its feathers.

One leg, even - odd!



I talked to it in the hope that maybe in another year I would be permitted to photograph it again.





I think it heard me!


I paddled on to other adventures, leaving the heron watchful.

PS The heron has stayed now for 3 days feeding itself. I have not approached it again.

Here

From the balcony I saw -




It is amazing what one sees here - look at the end of the dock:




Tomorrow I hope to show you what I saw next - photos reduced already! Please write

Come from "here"

Most of you know where I live - wilderness "pur".
And for most of you, right now, it is hot and dry.

So I thought of 3 flash-backs to cool us down.

First: January 2011 - from the balcony:



and cropped:






Next Christmas Day, 2014, an eagle has landed:




And if that is not "cool" enough, then how about this Snowy on Monday April 16th, this year:





So has that cooled anyone?
