It Seems I'm Not The Only One ...

... to notice the frogs.

Great Blue Heron

Tuesday I was working from our home office when a slight motion caught the corner of my eye. Looking up and out the window, maybe ten feet away, was a Great Blue Heron. Standing at the gate to our fish pond. It appeared to have ambled over from the frog pond garden.

It noticed me just as I noticed it. And before I could bring up my phone to take a photo (it was that close) it turned back toward the frog pond and flew off. I was on a conference call and thus could not pursue. Once the call ended I grabbed the camera and went looking. As I stepped out onto the deck it flew off toward the state forest behind our place.

It had been roosting out over our back pond.

It seems nowhere is safe.
