What? It's the middle of January?

Well, there goes my idea for a Christmas recap post.  Oh well.

On to what I really came here to tell you about today: the avian visitor we had today.  Have I mentioned we have a pond behind our house? No? Shame on me.  We do, and until today, I had never visited it.  Again, shame on me.   But today, the big, angry, loud dogs next door (now there's a post for another day!) started going crazier than usual, and I went to take a look.  Then I called for Isaac to bring the camera with our new telephoto lens.  Here's what I caught.

I believe this is a blue heron.  What a great excuse to finally visit the pond ... and try out our new lens!
