Heron And Pink Flamingo



The first photo was taken in Melbourne Beach, Florida, near Rykman Park on the Indian River Lagoon. This great blue heron was stalking things through the shallow water the whole time Lovely Wife were here watching the sunset. They are interesting to watch. Birds are such serious acting animals, especially the hunters like these, pelicans, etc.

The second photo is another bird, a fake, a pink flamingo at the top of another one of Lovely Wife's wind chimes. This is the only pink flamingo we have, we don't own any of those that people put in their front yards. This one is pretty nifty on breezy days too.

I like the photos and the explanation in words. It makes them interesting. I sometimes have problems with pictures and only a caption. But I know what a heron is like when stalking and it is not that much different from our egrets.

Thanks for your visits to my blog.

Both creatures seem at home in their natural habitats. Nice shots John. Hope all is well there.
