    Good selection. The horses have certainly had their moments this week, love the synchonised eating system. I love that heron, wish we had them here.

      That’s one that lives only on ocean. We get the great big herons, much like your cranes, but the little herons are saltwater birds. That one just stood there waiting for me to shoot. Just when I thought I was done, he turned around and gave me his OTHER side. Very helpful model, that one πŸ˜€

      Thanks. That heron really wanted to be photographed. He practically wore a bikini for me πŸ˜€

    I was wondering about that Heron. They are quite different from ours. Lovely photos. Spring is in the air.

      This is a juvenile Black (or maybe yellow)-crowned Night-Heron. ONLY along the ocean or very near. Both of us are too far inland to see these normally. We met this guy on the water in Connecticut. They live along the southern end of your ocean, too, so look around if you go to the beach. This one is a juvenile, which i why i can’t tell which one he is. The full coloring isn’t available until they are mature.

      Well, he IS hairy. Not as hairy as some dogs I’ve had, but pretty hairy. And grubby, as is appropriate to a terrier. Right. ‘Airy, Harry.

    You double dipped with the house and gate as well.
    Here one the left coast I have a photo of a night heron on a power line next to a KFC bucket
    The photo of the horses kept my attention the longest. It’s a piece of fine art.

      But, in fairness to me, I only captioned the Gate, right? Love my horses! They were all Percheron and HUGE. Like ten ton truck huge. Gentle giants. Maybe I can use them for Tee as in Ten Ton Trucks?

      I’m afraid your KFC bucket will have wait for next week. Art can be painful!

          They are best known as “circus horses.” They were commonly used for circuses because they have broad backs and a flat motion. But they were originally horses for knights in armor, as were ALL the really hugs horses.
