I've been doing studies of blue herons just because it's such a thrill when we catch them sitting so warily in a marsh or lake nearby. Now I'm seeing pictures of them everywhere and on live webcams, and a friend has sent me photos he took this weekend. My dining room table is once again covered with works in progress!
