A Heron Kind of Day

The large Heron has been a bit elusive lately.. comes in the dark of the morning and leaves as soon as it's getting light out. But I caught him this morning (finally!).

"the tall and the short of it all".. heh.. the long neck is amazing.

He calmly walked into the water and proceeded to take a bath.

I caught a good reflection during a calm moment.. Two for the price of one!

A day would not be complete without ol' Deadeye..  the reflection colors on the waters were so nice I had to show him off.

DeadEye and the Moorhens (I named them George and Gracie) were keeping a sharp eye on the pond this morning.. because.. you know who..

...was close by watching them!

"Him" I have not named because he's the villain of the pond!  Any suggestions?  Maybe Snidely Whiplash??

Lovely photos, Pat. Did the croc in Peter Pan have a name? The one that swallowed the clock?

Wonderful photos as usual. The guy at the end is scary and looks like he is plotting something bad...he needs a villain name for sure...hmmm...thinking about it but nothing is jumping out at me at the moment. I think we have to give him a name from literature though!

All the pictures are great, but the gator...fantastic. You realize up here in gator country, that picture would be an instant hit! I am going to try to do a color picture of it. Love the contrast of the placid pond and the lurking gator. Still the baby one, right? Vala3

I see they are keeping an eye on it. I don't blame them a bit. No name comes to mind. Helen

What about Crunch? There was this book I had as a kid about a crocodile that lived in a similar setting but the only thing I can remember about the book is his little catchphrase: "Crunch and munch, crunch and much. My name is Crunch and I want my lunch." Odd how silly things like that stick with you huh?
