keeping time, staying in step

by Andrea O'Connell

I ran so fast to get my camera when I saw these lovelies in the driveway today.  At first there were only two. Then a third and fourth swooped in, then a fifth and sixth flew in from different directions out of nowhere .

I think they’re a family, they do look quite young.

Isn’t it cute how they look to be walking in unison?

They were a nice gift today.

    Are you kidding. That is a spectacular shot Andrea. Your heart must have skipped several beats, when you realized you might be able to get a photo of this wonder, right on your driveway! Thanks always for sharing these moments. It just fondles the heart and let’s us see how much beauty there is in the world. They are really precious.

      Hey Weezie, Thanks so much! Yes, I was thrilled to see then. It’s rare to see that color heron, they are usually all white with orange beaks. But these were a lovely, soft brown. I’m glad they waited for me to run get the camera! Hugssssss!
