Fun with a heron

Back in the fall many of you told me you'd like more posts on travel.

After graduation, Tim and I headed down to Mobile, Alabama for the NAIA National Tennis Tournament.

We had a few free hours and drove to Dauphin Island. Beach walking is one of our favorite things to do. I had my camera, but the birds seemed more skittish than birds on the East Coast. I'd just about given up when Tim pointed to a heron who landed behind me.

At first we were so excited, and amazed, that the heron didn't fly away. Soon we had fun taking his picture. It turned into a photo shoot with our new friend, the heron. Here's just a few more.

What do you think? Did he want his picture taken? Have you ever had an experience like this?
