A spider has apparently been spinning his web near our back door. It looked pretty cool against the outside light.

I Love Herons!

One early morning a few months ago, I decided to walk to the pond that is a short distance from our home. There was a cool mist above the water and, low and behold, sitting near the edge of the pond was a blue heron! I don't know why I love herons so much. They are not the most attractive birds on the planet, but they fascinate me so. I guess part of the fascination stems from the fact that they don't look all that large. Then they get startled and start to fly and I am always amazed at their huge wingspan. I think they are pretty cool creatures!
