Default My backyard visitor

I had a visitor in my backyard this morning. Not unusual, as these birds walk across my backyard quite often checking to see if there are any fish swimming around. I walked inside and got my camera and grabbed a few shots. E-3 and 50-200mm.

Good catch Steven.
I know that guy! Cleaned out my pond of goldfish last month, there's a reward out on him.

Hey Scouse: where have you been? We have been wondering why we had not heard from you in a while. Been traveling again??

Hi Steven, Just haven't had the photography feeling lately, my muse has taken a holiday. I've been lurking though and feeling bad about all the good shots in here. Lousy weather and work, is another excuse.

Got a club meeting tomorrow and a "homework" assignment entitled "Relationships" That from a guy who's been married 3 times, sheeeesh!

Got a couple of shots in my library I'm thinking of so we'll see. It might get me in the mood again.

Good photos, Steven. Those first two reinforce what I've often thought, that herons don't seem to have the chest muscles to allow them to fly as well as they do.

So apparently the assignment really is "relationships" not "successful relationships".

Okay Scouse, let's see the ones in your library. Summer is here and you need to be out taking photos.

Thanks Ted. And remember when we were in school, they taught us that per scientists, bumblebees should not be able to fly. LOL
