That's My World Tuesday: Great Blue Heron and other sights

The great blue heron at Shelley Lake have spots they tend to hang out in during different seasons.

The spot where I saw this one is generally where I see them in the fall.

They are easier to photograph this time of year. I know where to find them during the spring and summer but they are very skittish and fly off fast during those seasons.

I can get much closer this time of year and they focus on fishing and ignore me.

Saturday was the perfect day for walking. It was cold in the morning but by mid day was warmer and very pleasant.

I have mostly been posting walks for my world lately but that's when I've been taking the most pictures.

Love the colors and look of Fall in your marvelous photos, Carver! And the Heron is magnificent. I saw one the other day at the harbor, but couldn't get close enough to get a decent shot! Hope you have a wonderful week! Enjoy!

You have lovely blue skies in fall to go with your blue heron. It's wonderful when you can get as close as this, even to see them when you can't get a photo.

Your photos definitely capture this time of the year. They are fantastic and I do love the ones of the heron, such special birds.

What a gorgeous post. Each picture was prettier that the one before. The giant blue heron is a magnificent creature. He looks so massive. I can’t believe he didn’t flinch and fly off with you so close. You must have been very quiet, and he must have been very hungry. The water and the rocks with the moss in the last two shots are beautiful.
