A few days ago we headed out for the day...just to get out and about. We ended up at Nashville, Indiana. The back side of the parking lot was this block wall and it was covered in murals...this one was wonderful. At least I thought it was.
I went fishing at Mansfield, Indiana the other evening...almost the whole time I was fishing this Great Blue Heron was up the creek at the base of the dam. I was there for over an hour and I did not see him catch anything...and neither did I for that matter. Finally, he flew up to this building that was just behind me about 30-40 feet. I definitely got the feeling I was in his fishing spot, so I eased back to the Rav4, got my camera and snapped a few pics and left him in peace after a few minutes.
We have not seen many hawks this summer...I seriously doubt we have seen a dozen. Compared to used to if we took a day trip, we might have seen close to a dozen. The other day when I drove through the strip pits on my way to Paris, I spotted this one. First on the ground and then in the air when I stopped to try to capture him. He definitely looks bigger in the air than he did on the ground.
