Johnny and I were at Yates Mill Pond enjoying the birds Friday afternoon. And, Joey, Johnny, Buddy, and I were at Simpkins Pond which is park of Lake Wheeler on Sunday. We saw a Great Blue Heron (assume different bird) each time. Yesterday, I captured this shot and wanted to share. The boys and Buddy and I tracked him around Simpkins Pond for about 45 mintues taking pictures of him in various locations and at various distances. It was a lot of fun. I didn't realize there was a trail around the pond, but now that we know about it and understand where it goes, we'll go on it again.
Also pictures is Joey looking out at the heron on the far shore. This shot makes me feel like we're someplace other than the local park in NC.
