Great Blue Heron sighted at Philadelphia Flower show

Evening Tide
Evening Tide

As we drive back and forth between The Philly Flower show and home, I always notice a couple of waterways from the NJ turnpike. It’s a no-man’s land out there, and I couldn’t tell you exactly where they are, but I always say I’m going to take my kayak out there someday. Usually in the summer the bright splashes of green form a beautiful backdrop for the many water birds there. Seems like I always cross paths with Herons and Egrets when I’m out paddling. Since I got in to kayaking I have been able to get so close to them. The last time was out in Barnegat Bay, I accidentally spooked a Great Blue Heron, being only a few yards from it as I emerged from some sedges. I just saw this image in my head and knew I wanted to do a big mosaic with evening colours of that bird. I had some perfect glass colours in hand and just finished it in time to debut for this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show. Please comment and let me know if you have had any good close-ups with any water birds.

    Great article-would like to publish in my free newsletter for seniors but was wondering if the information applies to Washington residents as well?

    Thanks so much, I don’t quite understand what you mean if it applies to washington residents. I would think that anyone could be interested in it though. Let me know is it washington state or dc?

    Your site theme looks awsome. What template did you use ?

  15. By Kim Folio-Dorland, June 11, 2010 @ 7:21 pm

    Hi there I am not sure which template this is. I work with and have a coach that picked it for me. I had a totally boring one before this.

    I will not debate with your conclusions because I think you’re exact on the money! You have put together a valid case for your sentiments and now I know more about this unusual topic. Thanks for this excellent post and i will come back for more.

    I guess that is what blogs are all about. It is just our opinions and ideas. Thanks so much for your comment!

    Recently, I did not give whole lot thought to commenting on weblog articles and have left feedback even less. Viewing your useful piece of writing, might inspire me to do this again.

    Thanks so much for your comments!

    Nice post. I be taught something more challenging on completely different blogs everyday. It will at all times be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and follow just a little one thing from their store. I’d desire to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.

    I am sorry someone who was teaching me about the internet chose this one for me. I don’t know which one it is myself. Are there really that many?
