I treasure connections with those who are touched in some way by nature’s beauty. During those magic moments, we share a special awe in nature’s presence. We are compelled to see and share. Connections make us who we are and relationships within nature give our lives meaning.

    Ah………..score another for a great shot and another one for the Night Heron. This little guy could give a lesson to the big boys couldn’t he. I think we all need to get together and devote a gallery to this successful hunter. Wonderful light you caught on him Joe. A fave. :)

  • Thank you Kathy! There are actually three BCNH nests at you know where. They are so much fun to watch and capture. Thanks for the fav also!
