hanging out

Blue Heron are usually solitary hunters. This afternoon I was so startled to see three together in an amicable group that I pulled over onto the shoulder to gaze in admiration at them. With their heads tucked low on their shoulders and their legs out of sight in the dry windswept grass they reminded me fleetingly of wild turkey, not the graceful hunters that they are.
They didn't seem to be hunting today, just hanging out.
I guess spring is in the air.

I'm always amazed at what you notice when you drive! And that you always seem to get home in one piece. Talk about your distracted drivers, I'm glad you pulled over this time! (PS you should carry a camera with you at all times to capture your adventures in pictures as well)

A camera?! You obviously haven't seen me take pictures. Now that would be truly distracting. I will heed your kind and timely warning though.
