07.10.2013 There is no privacy in Nature

Well, I just checked out Phil Lanoue’s most recent post regarding a Green Heron.  For no particular reason, aside from the species, it made me think of this image.  So this is for you, Phil.  🙂  I hope folks who like birds and crocs and swamps/salt marshes in general will take a look at Phil’s blog. 🙂  Really…who doesn’t like a good croc image?

So here is my offering although maybe some will think it in poor taste. 🙂  I don’t think this greenie was too happy about be paparazzi’d.Green-Heron-voiding-FB800So I am not a big one on milestones, but WP just informed me that this is post #100.  It probably took me twice as long as most other folks to get to that number. 🙂

    Ha! That Great! The bird’s face totally and perfectly matches the um, er, action, that’s taking place. 😀 He does not look at all happy about being disturbed at this particular time when nature calls.
    And hey Steve thanks very much for the mention and endorsement of my blog I greatly appreciate that!


  2. Strange and really exotic bird for me, beautiful picture. And congratulations with the 100, Stephen! 🙂

    I guess I have a twisted sense of humor, but I think it’s classic! Congrats on your 100th! I’m hanging in there at 99……..


  4. Lottie Nevin says:

    I love it! very funny and great timing! Many congratulations on your 100th post and looking forward to 100’s more 🙂

    AS the saying goes: has the bottom dropped out of your world? Take milk of magnesia and let the world drop out of your bottom. 100 up? Onwards to 200, Steve.


    • Interesting that “milk” is part of your reply as that is exactly the appearance. I’ll get a fresh start on the next hundred soon, but I know you will be leaving me in your dust. Thanks, Andrew.


  6. 😀 He looks very unimpressed at being interrupted at such a crucial moment!


  7. All things in nature have a beginning and an end-ing. It’s not possible to have timed a shot such as this one. 🙂 Hope to see 100’s more of your photos. And I very much like reading what you have written to accompany your posts.

    I misssed this post when I did not have any email for several days. Sorry that this is a late comment.


    • Thanks, Yvonne. I hope to post 100s more too. 🙂 Sorry you lost your email service for a while. A friend on FB was bemoaning how we have bought the idea we need all this instant communications and feel lost when it goes off line. I remember having to ask an operator to connect me with a specific person and wait while she, Enestine-like, took the cable and popped it into the right spot. 🙂 At any rate, your absence is always noticed and your presence appreciated. 🙂

    congrats Steve, on reaching 100, (posts 🙂 ) heh!! Love the photo, looks terribly annoyed. *cough* xPenx
    (Will this post? )


  9. penpusherpen says:

    of course it won’t Pffffffffft!! not than I’m, annoyed, just turning the air blue 🙂 . BUT I will be back to catch up with the next post!! (’tis lunch time ) xxx


    • Yes, our little greenie is not happy at being observed and whatever synonym for “annoyed” you might be referring to…very similar to the pictured activity I am guessing…I am sure is being projected.
      Well, I do hope that some day you can congratulate me on reaching 100, Pen. But for now I am happy with the century milestone of posting. I got off to a very slow start.
      Maybe now that I “approved” your posts they will no longer get dumped in the spam bin. Let us pray. 🙂


  10. Greg Russell says:

    Good grief, Steve! Remind me NOT to catch up on your blog while snacking…


  11. Do you think this was one of those decisive moments that Henri Cartier-Bresson had in mind?

    As for number 100: better a milestone on your blog than a millstone around your neck.
