Here come the herons – great blues!

Here are a few photos and arts from my heron collection – these look kind of like pterodactyls (sp)  though I’ve never seen one, they definitely sound like monsters with colds, and how they get up and away is amazing,  so ungainly, scruffy and clumsy, but cute too….
