A Magnificent, Grey Heron Was On My Pond Today

This past summer I created a rather large pond in my backyard.  It is certainly no lake; but it is 3 to 4 times larger than the preformed ponds available at Home Depot and/or Lowe’s.  At about noon today, I opened the door to let my dog go outside and I suddenly heard a deep, throbbing sound.  Within seconds a gorgeous, Great Blue Heron had lifted from my pond and had begun lifting away. For a few moments, it was not more than 10 feet away from me.  What a grand experience!File:Heron flying over 2 (6686456637).jpg
