Happy Friday the 13th

In our family, Friday the 13th is a lucky day. Can't wait to see what the day holds for me! It doesn't happen very often, so you have to go out and make something good out of it. I think I've turned the corner in the illness department. First morning I've woken up and maybe think I feel like myself! See, the 13th is a good day.

The other day I looked out the window to see the blue heron had stopped by for a visit. He's the most skitterish bird around I can barely get my camera out on the patio, before he's spooked and flies away.

I'm taking a class, working of DOF, failing miserable at deep DOF. I notice I like things shallow in photos. Oh well, I digress.

One snap of him looking for fish, and woosh, he's off. They look so prehistoric

 Little guy spent Wednesday with me. He loves to try to spray me with the hose. Now that I'm on to him, I can protect the camera. Love the devilish look on his face as he sprays away!

You're right about hrons, they do look sort of prehistoric don't they? Especially when they fly. Great work to get a shot of him before he flew off, I'm not usually so quick with photographing wildlife!

Thanks for linking up with Summer Daze :)
