I have never met a Blue Heron that I didn’t want to photograph. I can’t help myself. 🙂
I have three photos for today.
My great friend Mike and I had lunch yesterday and I was about 30 minutes early for our appointment (believe it or not) so I decided to drive a couple of miles to the 16th Street Basin. I was delighted to see a few Herons fishing there.
The deplorable conditions of the basin (junk wise) is something I have talked about before. I was overjoyed to see City Crews working diligently picking up garbage around the shoreline. I stopped and talked with one of the crew and told them how much I appreciated their work and she said that the city was committed to cleaning up the area. Later that afternoon I saw even more workers picking up trash.
I know this is a butt shot but like with herons I just have trouble passing up an opportunity to photograph a Goose. Besides my friend Betty loves geese. 🙂
I didn’t Photoshop out any of the garbage out of this shot. Normally I will work to get all the distractions out of the image but I wanted to give you an idea of just a small bit of the task ahead of the cleanup crew.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
