Another beautiful walk this morning, this time with a friend at the Kent Ponds. 💚

Thank you so much! It was a very lucky day!
You are an amazing photographer, Bonnie Rae! I love them all, but the bird with the fish, OMG! It’s like the bird is showing off a trophy! 🌞
Oh, I know, right?? It actually stood there while I tried to focus. The whole thing was surreal and especially that wild fish! Thanks, Lisa!
I enjoyed a lot of these, the swallows at work, the osprey, the bitterns not quite skinny enough to blend in with grass, but doing a pretty good job anyway. But the red-winged blackbird flying in front of the GBH – what a capture! And most of all the heron with the fish at the top. It blew my mind when I saw the image in my email. I clicked, half-expecting that it was some photo from a Nature program that you were promoting, but fingers crossed that it was yours. And it’s YOURS! Omigosh, how delighted you must have been.
I could not have been happier … or luckier that day! My friend and I had a private showing of “the catch”. These new ponds I’ve discovered are just fabulous!
Thank you, I’ll circle back for another look.
That GBH with the fish is truly amazeballs.
Also the fish is a gorgeous one! In its last moments.
Yes, I do always feel sorry for the fish. I’m sure it never saw it coming … and it was swallowed whole! Yikes!
Oh my god, right?? I was over the moon. And it just stood in front of me like that for several seconds.
wow, TWO bitterns! and in such a great setting. And the heron with the fish! And the swallows with twigs! These are so lovely. And thanks for the IDs.
Oh, I was just giddy this morning! So happy you appreciate these sweet souls as I do. BTW, I went back and labeled my other photos! That heron made my day!
