Heron Haven 7

Posted by karla (Omaha, United States) on 11 May 2011 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

My posting has been interrupted by various matters, including a sudden 20-degree above normal (yesterday was 97 degrees F) heat wave that coincided with the house air conditioning unit not working, which then made the computer room too warm so I left the computer off. That has been followed by a series of heavy thunderstorms. The a/c is fixed but now I hear thunder again, so will need to hurry this along! I don't know what others do, but I turn off the computer and completely unplug its electrical connections when there is a bad storm. The image above is just another view. The goose family we are following are in the upper left. The parents are discussing taking the "kids" for a swim, which involves some strategic planning to prevent attacks from an enemy. Eventually you will see the cause of the danger. At the top edge is a strip of land that is actually a very small island and we will see more of it in the future. Hope this is not too boring--if so, come back in a few days for other types of images. ;-)

Thank you for visiting! Your comments and suggestions for improvement are very much appreciated.

Heron Haven looks like an excellent place to observe waterfowl.
Great overview shot! Love the image detail and the perfect natural colors.

@Marzia: Thanks, Marzia! Thanks for your visit and comments. They did look contented, perhaps because for the most part, the area is a save place to raise their young. with just a few exceptions....
