22 In The Trees


22 In The Trees

In Florida, there are numerous great blue herons and so it is common to see them especially when around the water’s edge. They make their nests in mangroves and shoreline trees lining their nests with branches gleaned from neighboring bushes and trees. This heron mother had a rather mature chick (it must have been a teenager) which loudly and persistently called to his parent. When she finally bent her head down, the chick grabbed her beak in his and did not let go for some time. It appeared to have made its point.

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.
