Hi and welcome.
Sometimes patience is all it takes and so it was, when these shots were taken of a white-faced heron meandering its way through the shallow waters at the edge of the Severn River. This river, running through Stanthorpe, forms part of the vast wetlands area that have been established in the township, attracting a wide variety of bird life.
This layout for: http://kcclayoutchallenges.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/lm-210-natures-glory.html
features the use of die-cut film strips and stamping. I've used the film strip sections for my journalling.
I'm sure we weren't the only ones being patient this particular morning. The heron outdid all of us, standing still for up to 5 minutes at a time before taking another cautious step. When it spotted something appetising it would stand on one foot with its whole body quivering, until it quickly plunged forward with its head and long beak, before moving on to another section of the river.
We were able to watch it, and some ducks swimming nearby, for 15 - 20 minutes before it flew off further down stream.
A peaceful start to a very pleasant day.
Thanks for stopping by.
Catch you again soon.
