Watery Wednesday

The other morning, there were a lot of herons in the river.

One great blue, at least four black crowned night herons, and a couple that I think are bitterns, although they were too far away to get anything decent.

And before anyone comments on the quality of the images, remember that I have a little point and shoot camera, and I was making it do things it was not designed for, to get these photos.

The second photo only has one night heron in it, while the others have two.

Great pics of a beautiful place--never mind the point & shoot (I use one too).

What's wrong with a point 'n shoot?
Lovely pix. All that greeny tinting looks great.

I'm another one who has a point and shoot! I think you did a good job with these pictures! :-)

Thank you all for your kind comments. I was miffed a while ago, when someone said my shots could have been better if I had cropped more. That was another shot like this one.

Heron are so graceful when they walk and fish and so gangly looking when they fly. Here we see one or two at a time but not this many together.

These are great photos, Judy! They have a wonderfully soft and peaceful feel to them. It must be nice to see that many herons in one spot..we don't get that chance where I am.

I loved your comments on my water post about photos being bound by borders when real life isn't..so true!

Great shots, Judy! I love the colors and lighting in these photos.

I also have a point and shoot camera, and always push it to the limit..

Quality of the images? I was thinking how beautiful the early morning light was and how it gave your photos a almost watercolor quality. I especially like the third one down.

The heron is such a graceful creature... These photos are great, Judy...they have painted-like quality! Happy Weekend ((HUGS))
