All’s well that ends well in the Heron family saga.

Do you remember this pair of Great Blue Herons? I seriously wondered if their relationship was going to last, because it looked like Ms. GBH was trying to pick a fight with her mate.


The next time I saw them, they didn’t even seem to be speaking to one another!


Then a few days ago, I was so relieved to see that all was hunky-dory again, and there they were, playing ‘happy families’. Mommy was feeding the babies whilst daddy was doing a bit of home restoration.


I do love a happy ending, don’t you? Have a great weekend, and think of me playing my heart out on Sunday night.



“Don’t turn your back on me baby” for Photo a Week ‘Humor’

Nancy Merrill has a Photo a Week Challenge. This week, the topic is ‘Humor’ and she invites us to “SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF SOMETHING OR SOMEONE THAT TICKLES YOUR FUNNY BONE.”

I find this photo taken last week at the Wakodahatchee Wetlands, rather comical.


When I saw this couple of Great Blue Herons who looked as though they’d had a bit of a tiff, I was immediately reminded of that line in the Carlos Santana classic song Black Magic Woman, “Don’t turn your back on me baby.” I hope they kissed and made up before bedtime.

Wishing you all a great weekend.
