Am I Blue?

Seen on a recent trip to the Ft. Eustis bank of the James River - the Great Blue Heron.
Coming in for a landing...
Touchdown

Beachwalking

This bird is one of my favorites - so stately and graceful!


Linking to Outdoor Wednesday and Wild Bird Wednesday.  Thanks, Stewart, for running with this!

You KNOW I'm gonna love this. I like the first one in the sequence of the heron taking a step. Excellent.

Hey, if you want to share your bird photos I started up a new meme last week...the Bird D'Pot. Check out my sidebar and go to my birding blog.

Glad you have you back, you've been missed.

Hi,

I came across your site while browsing some travel sites. I must say you are doing a commendable job.
I am a blogger & maintain few travel blogs. Some of my blogs are:
www.cheapoairtravelblog.com
www.businesstravelconnection.com
www.funfoodandtravel.com

At present I am working with CheapOair.com . Our
sites can be useful to one another. So, I offer you a partnership.
I have some options for you.

1. I could cover you on my blog and in return I would like a back link for my website from your blog within the content.
2. If you allow guest blogging I would be glad to write a blog post as a guest blogger. Within the post there would be a single link to my website.
3. We both can do guest blogging for each other where we can add links to our respective websites.
4. On top of giving link from my blog, I can also give you some links from other websites that I am managing.


Let me know your views soon.

Regards

Ashwin(ashwin@cheapoair.com)

Linda, you and a few other bloggers I follow are certainly challenging me to get out work at learning to get those bird shots. I have never been any good with photographing anything that fly. Birds, planes or just a frisbee rarely do I get a decent shot. But, you have embarrassed me into trying to do better.

Great shots!
