Great Blue Heron and Mourning Doves

I love my backyard with all the wild life all year long.  There is always a small or large creature out here that makes me smile, makes me feel joyful.  This morning it was the Blue Heron and the Mourning Doves.
 The Great Blue Heron comes often to fish in the little lake and I love watching his very cautious behavior as he peers through the water, sneakily stepping in slow motion...

I Love the reflection in this one and the winter colors in the background. 

And the Mourning Doves were sitting where the sun had been, all facing in one direction as though the wind were blowing but it was not.

Thanks so much for coming today!
My heart to yours...

Have a beautiful week ~

It sounds like a beautiful setting. I love watching a heron walk around.

Love your shots, Kerrie! We have herons on our lake and I love to watch them. When we come close they get still as statues - until we get too close and they stretch those mighty wings to fly. It's breathtaking, isn't it? One of the lovliest things I've ever seen was a heron flying just above the water at sunset. The water was smooth as glass and as the heron gracefully flapped his enormous wings, the very tips just skimmed the water's surface. I will never forget it. Thanks for reminding me today :)

Beautiful pictures, Kerrie! I do believe I like the reflections almost as much as the real thing. Just returning from sick leave and trying to catch up with everyone.
