My World Tuesday Season # 2 Episode # 48

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren,  Sylvia and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. Click to visit other sites. A Happy Labor Day to all in the USA, a day of rest.

I was on the lake last week when the same big orange buoy was giving another gift. This time a Great Blue Heron was using it as a perch.
I tried the same troll as close as I could to get photos.
But Great Blue Heron are craftier then Cormorants. See what others have to offer at the site above.

Great pictures, Tom... You managed to get some good ones of that beauty on the buoy....

Hope you have had a great Labor Day.

LOL -- I don't imagine the heron was really happily balanced on that buoy, or concerned about having his portrait taken, either!! Good try.
I always like to look at your photos because my dad was a "fishing guy" too. He liked to wear waders and stand in cold rivers, fly-casting.

Looks like he was watching out for you. Great picture.

these are some great captures FG.

Great capture, these guys usually fly off before I can get too close. As you probably know they are pretty good fisherman.

Gaelyn said...

That Great Pumpkin buoy is quite the bird attractant.

Rajesh said...

Fantastic captures. You have great lake, where you can see variety of birds,

George said...

The Great Blue may be crafty, but I don't think he's a match for you. I think you got a couple of great pictures of him on that buoy.

Lovely pics! What a great pose the heron put on for you.

Shionge said...

Great colour contrast I must say :D

Philip said...

So what did he do or do we have to wait :)

Now that is what I call the prefect fishing spot Tom. :)

BTW I see you have coins in your header - do you know much about them? I have a coin collection and dont know what to do with it so I am trying to find out if it is worth anything before getting rid of it.

Darla said...

What a popular spot for the birds...

I love the Great Blue Herons. They are so graceful in flight.

Thanks.

This Heron is so beautiful!Once again your pictures remind me a Heron that I used to see in the lake inside a park near my home.Suddenly he diapered and I miss him!
Thanks for these lovely pictures!

You know, Tom, that takes some great skill to fly in and land on something so small in the center of a lake. LOL
