Say Hello To My Leetle Friend

I finally got the license plate number of the beastie what scared my Big Doggie last fall!

You can run....
You can try to hide...
You can stand around on one leg trying to look nonchalant...
You can turn your back and try to ignore me....
You can even stomp around all crazy like with your knees on backwards like that.....

But I'll get you my pretty!!!!


Finally, some successful blue heron pictures after only a year of stalking! I'm nothing if not persistent! Click to biggify! You won't be sorry!

That's some seriously good stalking you did! Herons are mighty skittish.

And they can make a gawdawful cronking noise. Oh, and when they fly up after being startled, they utilize a great defense mechanism... they poop! And given that they are big birds and eat a lot of fish and frogs, well, it's a lot of poop and stinky gooey too.

But their feet are so cool... like our palms with the lines and all. AND their middle toes are "pectinate", like a comb, for making themselves so handsome.
