A Great Blue Heron passed by my office window which is a rare treat up here in the foothills. I ran out with camera in hand knowing that it was heading for the Avimor Town Lake. Unfortunately the Heron spooked before I could get a picture, but the recent rains and fall foliage begged to be photographed.
I love the brilliance of this tree contrasting with the nest.
Autumn beauty surrounds Spring death. The egg shell remnants in the nest show evidence of a brutal raid and unsuccessful brood.
