I'm calling this photo of the day.
今日のベストショットかな。

As I walked along the river this morning, I spotted several beautiful birds. This is one of them - a white egret (or heron). As you can see, they are majestic flyers.

I was also fortunate enough to spot an "aoji" for the first time too - known as a black-faced bunting in English apparently.

If we look at nature closely we can usually find an interesting hidden message.

What did you find?

I have painted something new, but it's not on paper! What could it be? You'll have to wait and find out as it still needs some finishing touches! 😉 This birdie is a nankeen night heron. A naturally shy species that requires a (nan)keen eye to spot sometimes.

Although it's the closest National Wildlife Refuge to me, Nisqually isn't one of my favorite places to photograph. In some respects, it's what a "wildlife refuge" should be - a place in the middle of our bustling cities where wildlife can relax and get away from us. Most of the waterfowl are far off, and the lone owl I found this day was asleep. Even the eagles kept their distance.

On this day, though, on the way to the boardwalk I noticed this heron. He wasn't too far away, and didn't seem to mind me as I crouched down and hung out for awhile. Even the herons at Juanita Bay and Marymoor are more skittish, and he was even kind enough to pose in front of a nice background of reeds.

Around here, herons are about as common as rats. In fact, I can recall far more heron than rat sightings. With their grace, colors, and behaviors, however, I just can't seem to stop photographing them. #birdsofinstagram #bird #heron #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wild #instagramer #instagram #instamood #instagood #travel #becurious #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwlife #followme #seattle #washington #refuge #beautifuldestinations #beautiful #nationalgeographic #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeplanet
