(Thank you, all of you who responded. My pictures seem to be showing up now. I had to change a setting on my picture storage locations. Thanks for your patience! I will be re-posting my mottled duck picture that didn’t come through right.)
There are a lot of great blue herons along the Gulf of Mexico, and this is nesting time. We often see them at home, feeding in the shallow ponds. It’s fun to see the herons across down here on their nests. Can you see them in about the center of the picture?

And I love this photo of the heron, looking a little wild…
