Nature Friday and Feline Friday

 Nature Friday host LLB Gang  and Feline Friday  host Comedy Plus

December 6th we had a most rare and exciting sighting while trekking around Shelly Lake.    Four great blue herons in one spot. 
We were some distance away but I zoomed in...clicked quickly.
We walked to a cove just on the other side the the trees hoping for a closer view.
Two flew off.
Seeing one makes me smile
Seeing four  makes me lucky

Pickles Comic Strip for March 06, 2012

This home is located at the end of our street.
They have the most creative decorations for all holidays.
The Penguins are right at home in this adaptations their home
Look closely at the Nativity Scene you see what I see?
Wise men and Joseph are all wearing masks.


  1. Hari OM that a cat masquerading as a lamb??! Anyhoo, the important thing is those herons - what a find and capture! YAM xx

  2. oh my... so many herons.. that is a sign of good luck!!! and we love da lamb in da howly furmily... it makes is extra special ;O)

  3. I wondered for a minute if the Three Kings were wearing face masks! Oh how this pandemic has seeped into the way we look at things...
    Great photo of the FOUR herons.
    Happy Nature Friday.
    Cheers, Gail.

    1. I thought the same until I realised it must be beards because Mary wasn't wearing one!

    2. My wondering about the masks, as well.

  4. We three kings of orient are
    Wearing masks all made from afar!!
    The penguins in lollipop land!!

  5. I don't know what I should be seeing in the Nativity. I see the lamb and the bear.
    Lovely photo of the herons.

  6. That is pretty cool to see four herons at once! We think we see the baby and he's not supposed to be born until Christmas.

  7. What a wonderful sighting! So beautiful and graceful they are. And of course dad had to go ahead and ruin my reverie by saying all he sees in the picture is leaves that need to be raked up.

  8. Great capture on the 4 herons. I love their penguins and giant suckers.
    Looks like a cat to me too.

  9. Your neighborhood is FULL of creative folks - always wonderfully kept yards but when there's a special occasion or holiday - they do a wonderful job with so much to see and enjoy. Love the masks in the Nativity scene.....

    Hugs, Pam

  10. You are pretty dang lucky seeing the 4 GBH! I am clueless to what I should be seeing in the Nativity????

  11. How great to see 4 herons. We've only ever seen one at a time. Those are cute holiday decorations and we love the comic.

  12. even here in FL where herons are common sight, i have not seen 4 in one place. amazing. it looks like someone handmade the nativity. there yard looks good, like the penquins..

  13. Herons are my fave bird. So lucky to have seen so many. Love the masked wisemen. Hey clearly are wise!

  14. I haven't seen a heron in several weeks. They must have migrated south. There are still lots of geese, though! The wise men with masks are funny. In these days of covid, they wouldn't have even been allowed to visit!

  15. Beautiful lake shot. Love all the birds. So beautiful.

    The cartoon made me laugh out loud. I love that comic strip.

    The decorations are beautiful. Some folks are so crafty.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hug, honey. ♥

  16. The masked Magi!?
    I like the penguins in lollipop land.

  17. Those 4 herons are amazing ! We have seen them flying in pairs but never more than that !

  18. How cool to see 4 herons like that! I really liked that funny and MOL on the masks!

  19. Great shot. I love the nativity. I might put some masks on our wise men. :) XO

  20. Wow! I love seeing those herons together. We get a couple around here, but never four! And what a creative Nativity scene!

  21. Yes, COVID seems to have changed most things. There were 4 herons...where are their masks?
