The Elegance of a Heron

White-faced Heron

They say that familiarity breeds contempt, but I tend to disagree.

Lately I’ve become very familiar with the sight of these lovely, elegant birds known as White-faced Herons.

Their charm is undiminished. I cannot fight my impulse to grab the camera and take as many photographs as I wish. Believe it or not, these birds can be most obliging, often posing in just the right spot for an interesting shot.

    One must enlarge the view to see the true Heron,
    then shall one’s view be enlarged by the shot of our heroine,

    I’m the same way with the Great Blue Herons here. They just love to post for my camera, and I’m only too willing to oblige them.

    • Isn’t it fascinating? And when I’m very lucky, a rare (to my location) White Egret also poses for me. It makes me smile. šŸ™‚

  6. We get both the heron and the egret on Lake Macquarie. I wrote a poem about them once after I saw them hunting in the same area of the shore. Beautiful!
