These 2 Green Herons were so much fun to watch the other morning. It looks like a mother and a young one. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
The larger one would walk along the rail and the little one would follow along. At one point, it looked like they were fighting as the parent tried to get away.
The last photograph almost looks like the parent is reprimanding the little one. So much fun to watch… and then they both flew away!
Yesterday was the 30th Annual Arey’s Pond Cat Gathering, one of the largest gatherings of catboats on the east coast. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
“Our annual Cat Gathering is a time for catboats of all shapes and sizes to come together for a just-for-fun regatta through Pleasant Bay. Every year over 80 boats come together for this parade of sail.”
It was just spectacular to see all of those sailboats out on the water!
It was a gorgeous morning at Arey’s Pond with the beautiful reflections of the sailboats and their tall masts and the stormy clouds.
Beautiful view and beautiful colors!
We had stopped to watch all of the bird activity at Arey’s Pond the other morning when we saw 3 Belted Kingfishers flying about looking for food. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
I couldn’t get them all in one frame but this one looked like a baby waiting for his parent to feed him. Meanwhile, we watched the adult eat what looked like a turtle and then something else…maybe a fish?
What a great experience and so much fun to watch!
I love walking out on the docks at Arey’s Pond Boat Yard in Orleans. There is always so much going on. Such a great view of the sailboats and motorboats and dinghys ready to go!
It is such a pretty drive down the road to Arey’s Pond In Orleans. This morning there were beautiful reflections everywhere.
Love all the blues…
