I'd Rather B Birdin'
|Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, December 7, 2015|
If you visit my blog often, you already know that the Great Blue Herons are my favorite birds (until the Hummingbirds return in the Spring!).
I set my camera for continuous shooting whenever I am photographing birds. I get a lot of duplicate photos, but occasionally I get an action series like this.
I think this is a female Great Blue Heron; the males are already putting on their breeding plumage.

I had noticed this well-kept farm before, but we were always in a hurry to get somewhere. Then this past Monday we had extra time and no traffic on the road, so I was able to stop and get a photo.
There are several donkeys in the pasture with the cows to raise the alarm if coyotes come near. I have no personal experience with donkeys, but people say donkeys bray loud enough to scare predators away, and will kick like the devil if they get within range.

Replicas of Christopher Columbus' ships, the Pinta and the Nina, made a stop at Mid-Way Marina on their way to the Gulf Coast.
"I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer her by."
John Edward Masefield, English poet and Poet Laureate from 1930 until his death in 1967.
Hope you are having a wonderful week-end!
