    College of Mainland Pond-Texas City

    It's amazing what you can get from a college pond. I mean there I was watching the ducks taking bathes and here comes along a green heron! He was only a couple feet from me. I slowly turned my camera/tripod towards him and started to shoot a few dozen pictures. He was too close! So stupid me started to step back slowly. His eyes got big! OMG it's a human! I guess he thought I was a tree. LOL A big Oak Tree.

    Nice Grackle! Even 'weed' birds can be beautiful when pictured with care. C.

    Yes, you should've seen the look on my face!

    When he flew in at the duck ramp he didn't notice me because I was so still like a tree. On the other hand, I think he had his eye on the baby ducklings.
