Sunday Walk

I took Dodger for a walk this afternoon. Being a Lab/German Shepherd mix, she points and tries to flush. She pointed at this and then tried to flush, but stopped short when she realized just how big it was.

Even after Dodger stopped, the heron did not like our presence and flew further down. We followed it some more and I was able to get some other shots. This is one of them.

This was within a half mile of my house and while I see them every once and while, this was the first time I was able to take pictures. They are majestic birds and I can understand why Dodger stopped. The are usually between 3 to 4 1/2 feet tall. This one was right at 4 feet.
