I got to watch a Great Blue Heron at the wetlands again, this time it seems to have caught something and ate it. If you watch closely you can even see it licking its beak.

 

On a visit to the wetlands we saw a Great Blue Heron, which coincidentally landed just as we got there. I’ve never been so close to a heron before, it was really magnificent. Here is the video, which is followed by some still shots.

The above picture is the only shot of it that I got with my better quality camera before the battery died.

It was such a slow moving bird, when it moved it was so subtle that you wouldn’t have noticed it from afar.

The Redwing Blackbird had good reason to be defensive, especially if it has a nest because the Great Blue Heron is a predatory bird and eats eggs and hatchlings.

Heres some action shots:

Today I thought I’d try to draw a few characters from a really cute cartoon called “The Fantastic Adventures of Unico”

Unico

I feel like this story speaks volumes, not only does it teach that we have the ability to spread happiness wherever we may be NO MATTER HOW GLUM the circumstances may be- It also teaches us that people with behavior that we find unsuitable or unpleasant are sometimes the people who need a friend the most because they are the ones who get in trouble because of being mislead by their whims!

Beezle was just downright abusive to unico… he had no idea how to be friends, he is a devil after all. But when it came right down to it, he made up an excuse to break his usual rules of conduct and he pulled through for unico when he was in danger!

Katy was an abandoned kitty with grand dreams of becoming a witch, she just wasn’t living in the “real world”. Katy seemed very selfish when they first met and one thing lead to another and then Katy was in danger despite unico’s good advice. She didn’t seem to have loyalty to anyone, not even herself. She redeems herself after a near fatal incident at a castle where unico and beezle make an appearance.
