"Revisiting Past Headers"

The theme this week is "Revisiting Past Headers ".  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

I chose to redo the header theme from 4/8/15 "Pictures from the Past". I'm sure everyone will do this theme differently. I enjoy taking bird photos so I will show some of my favorites. I took these photos on a trip to Florida.

Here is a Great Blue Heron with a itch.
 He gave a right turn signal and then didn't move.
Here is a Great White Egret on a perch.
He was a poser.
This is a Black Crowned Night Heron I saw at a dock.
As it flew away I got this artsy capture.

I chose Looking Up  but sometimes you can take a Looking Up shot by looking down into a reflection.
You can look up into a colorful sky and see the sun or
the moon,
a helicopter,
a hot air balloon,
a blimp
or the famous Goodyear Blimp in your back yard. So keep looking up to see what is there.

They are a neat flower.
We have had a lot of rain so the Cuyahoga River is running really high. The guy in the yellow was right on the edge.
I wouldn't want to fall into that flow.
A stairway with a water ending, be careful.

You really want to enjoy the day.
The Canada Geese and the goslings abound and get ready for a swim.
The rabbits laze around in the back yard.
