Almost every day in the early evening Hazel picks me and Katie up and we go for a ride around the campground to give her Greyhounds a good walk.
|Hazel and Fleur and Power - exercising the Greyhounds.|
|See how he holds his left foot up, "fingers" stretched out?|
|His beard isn't puffed out in this photo.|
|He usually doesn't move, just stands there. But I caught him in a big yawn.|
|This is the terrain on the lower part of the hill. We think there is a nest in one of the trees behind him.|
One day both the male and female were there. I love seeing Great Blue Herons, from the first one I saw at Santee Lakes June of 2011 during my first month in The Palms to today. Whenever I see one it makes my day and a good photo is the frosting on the cake.
|Male on the left and female on the right. He looks very puffed up and protective. We've only seen her once.|
I think it's interesting that I mentioned the other day I love getting pictures of Great Blue Herons, but hadn't yet gotten a good clear close-up. Then - waaa laaa - here they are. I don't know how I'd get a better shot than these. I love looking at them. The birds and the photos.
These are the kinds of pictures I would have used for the front of note cards that I used to enjoy making and giving as gifts when I had a good office set-up at home.
It's a beautiful Sunday at Bluewater Lake State Park here in New Mexico - I hope you are enjoying a beautiful day, too.
From me and Katie, have a great day everyone! :)
