Before picking up my tulips from the flower market, yesterday's post, we walked around Herdsman Lake. We often start off at the same spot and I always check to see if Norman the nankeen night heron is in his usual spot and there he was giving me the side-eye as if to say 'what, you again with the camera, enough already'.. never enough Norman :)
Sitting atop a tree in the lake a white heron looking decidedly phantom. How majestic it looks sitting there surveying the scene before flying off to pastures greener..
We caught up with the heron at the waters edge, the herons are fascinating to watch. Their necks, elegantly curved as they stare intently into the water, then stretch out to an astoundingly long length before plunging into the water.. unlucky on this occasion.
You may remember the last time we walked here I was one step away from standing on a tiger snake, I won't make that mistake again. Danger that you are aware of is easier to deal with and this walk is far too pretty to give up, sturdier shoes and attention to where you step is the order of the day. 100% chance of rain for the next two days, looking forward to it :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..
