GREAT BLUE HERON – April 30, 2015

Good Morning! Glad you could join me for a walk today, the last day of April, 2015. My-oh-my where do the days and months go?

I actually walked yesterday but only took two pictures and neither one was “blog-worthy”. That’s one of the few times I’ve been skunked.

This morning looked like it was going to be a repeat but then I got lucky down on the wharf.

As I was approaching the Coupeville Wharf I thought these flowers and what little sunrise we had would make a nice photo and it did except it’s a tad out of focus. I should have been carrying my tripod.

I spotted a nice big Blue Heron from the dock and chased it around trying to get a nice photo. Here’s the one I liked best. You usually don’t see that much blue on them, generally they are more gray.

Shortly after that photo it took flight and I tried to capture it with its wings out. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough light for a good fast photo but I kind of like how it turned out. It’s sort looks like a ghost bird with a ghost seagull chasing it. What looks like a second seagull below is actually a reflection in the water. My attempt at being artsy 🙂

I hope you enjoyed that and will join me again tomorrow. As always, thanks for walking with me.

COLD, FOGGY, FROSTY AND ICING

I really had to be careful this morning as the fog had frozen on the streets and it was very slippery. The fog was heavy in Coupeville but had a nice sunrise out on the Ebey Prairie. All that made for some nice photo to start your week. So get you jacket on and lets go for a walk.

Did I mention it was foggy? Here are two photos of the wharf this morning.

Out on Ebey Prairie the sun was trying to make an entrance.

At the Sherman’s Pioneer Farm Produce I spotted this retired tractor. I really like taking photos of old farm equipment and they have a bunch.

And for something just a little off the wall I spied Penny sporting an interesting T-shirt at the Far From Normal store.
