The Riviera pond had a special guest last week! The neighbours called him “one-legged Willy”! My experience with Blue Heron has been “they see you…they’re gone”… …so I was surprised when “Willy” didn’t bolt with all the folks walking near the pond! Once I had a closer look…”Willy” was sleeping!! At one point, he tucked his head into his long flowing chest plumes…Eventually, the playground noise got his attention, but he stuck around…We were able to walk all the way around to the other side of the pond (thus the different light) but by that time, the wind picked up causing ripples in the reflection shot… Then it was time…but I was prepared…enjoying some great quality time with “one-legged Willy” before he headed off into the sunset! Such a majestic sight…right in “my backyard”! Enjoy more Blue Heron photos in the gallery!
