We are so blessed living where we can see so many tropical birds and creatures right in our own back yard.  We have seen everything from Great Blue Heron, Snowy Egret and Greater Egrets to Wood Storks.  We get all the more common visitors of birds, Beavers, Raccoons, and even Red Fox and Coyote's!  I took these pictures of the Great Blue Heron in the pine trees across the lake a couple of weeks ago.  I did run outside to take these but others were taken right from my den window.

And these great pictures were taken by Hubby last week when the Great Blue was visiting along the shore, sunning and preening. 

And can you tell that Hubby's camera is better than mine?? Ha!  I get so excited when I see his pictures!

This is my favorite of the Egret, you can even see the yellow of his eye!  I tell myself that I am going to use them for reference when I paint-ha!  But I never seem to make the time to paint any longer.  Someday....
Thank you for visiting as always and do visit my other blogs with the links in the sidebar.  you are always welcome and we love your comments!!

My heart to yours...
