Wonder of Nature

I just couldn't help but post a few pictures today so I can hook up with Outdoors Wednesday and Wild Bird Wednesday. I seldom go out on my balcony without camera in hand and as sure as I do... uh oh, I've missed a great shot. You learn by mistakes, I guess.

Anyway, you all enjoy these while I am out getting my hair done and having lunch with my daughter Shirley. I'll check on your posts as soon as I get back. 


Mid-afternoon yesterday I walked out on the balcony and my breath was taken away by the beautiful cloud formations to the south. Don't you agree? Just so stunning. Of course, the camera does not do them justice but I tried. 





For a long time I watched the heron easing it's way slowly along the pond bank, watching for something to snag for supper....



and then, as the evening shadows began to creep across the water and the light began to fade, I saw a fluttering of wings in the far off trees. I wonder if he is going to nest there tonight?


Gee, I should be back soon from my hair appointment and lunch..... Until then....

Have a wonderful day yourself!!

  10. Love those heron shots, too. Gosh, it IS difficult to get the full effect of the sky, but love what you've captured, Latane. Have a nice weekend.
