A heronly visit

From time to time we have an avian visitor.  He’s camera shy, and the visits are fleeting.  So when he appears, we’re thrilled.  He visited the other weekend as we were sitting on our porch.

The Husband:  “Hmm, I think there’s a large bird in the plot…wonder what it is?”


The Cat’s Mother:  “Where?”

Heron 2

The Husband:  “Behind the broad beans and the pea patch.”

Heron 3

The Cat’s Mother:  “I think it’s Heron.  I hope Pearli’s not in hunting mode.  She’d come off second best.”


Husband:  “Ah yes, it’s Heron…”


The Cat’s Mother:  “Ah, yes, it was!”
