Ok, so I will just step on out there in the sun and pose!


Sorry Lady, Lizard sighted! can't miss breakfast

Sounds exactly like me and whatever creature I am trying to photograph. Most are not usually as accommodating as this heron was for you! Great shots Sandra!

Cute comments with the pretty photos! Our heron that hangs around the pond won't stand still long enough for me to get close to him.

Amy Burzese said...

Hahaha! Love.

Gail said...

Fantastic!

Ginny said...

Wow, those yellow eyes and that long and sharp beak!! One of my favorite things about your blog is your captions, they always make it so much fun. If I just looked at these pictures, they are cool, but that is all. BUT when you add your captions, I ALWAYS have to laugh!!! They really add the FUN to it! That is something I am not that good at and really need to work on, people love to laugh. The last picture looks like you posed him!!! So how much did he charge?

I had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading the story about Harley, the heron. This could have been or could be a children's book. Love it. Love the photos! Great job, Sandra!

George said...

I enjoyed watching Harley play Peek-A-Boo with you.

Cranberry Morning said...

I LOVE the Harley photos, Sandra! Makes me happy just to view that beautiful creature.

Linda said...

A great set of photos and commentary by Harley and the last photo is just wonderful. Thanks for the repost.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Well he was a good sport!

The original post was before my time in blog land so, I'm glad you re posted it. Harley is gorgeous and these are really crisp and clear. Looks like it was a really nice day.:)

Inger said...

I love him hiding in plain sight! What a fun post, thanks for reposting it.

Ann said...

I wish all creatures were as accomodating as Harley. Him and Jake have something in common with the lizzard thing :)

Chatty Crone said...

Okay he is quote the handsome model there isn't he? sandie

SquirrelQueen said...

Once Harley got over his shyness he gave you some great poses. Or maybe he realized that if he posed for your camera he would be famous. Either way he is a very handsome guy.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

The added descriptions make this so fun. You did get lovely pictures.

Dee said...

You made me giggle with Harley...in that one photo i thought he was mooning for you. LOL

EG CameraGirl said...

Harley seems almost tame!

Rose said...

Generous of him to pose for you!

Betsy Adams said...

Harley is a nice guy... Hope you found him some more lizards for lunch!!!!!! He posed so well for your photos --although I'm sure he'd just wish you'd move on --outta there!!!!!!

Great photos..
Hugs,
Betsy

photowannabe said...

That is delightful.
Your sense of humor shines through.
I would never have thought of that...they would be photos that got dumped not woven into a fantastic story!

Eva Ason said...

These are some great pictures of Harley

Funny!
I'm catching up backwards, can't believe I missed these many posts. But I've been away out at the house some days and other days it's just been too hot to spend much time in my study at the computer.
