I love the new world on line
I can chat with all the corners of the world at leisure.
Your Mum's Garden sounds like a treasure

I like his orange bits contrast with the blue. Very pastel... almost as if dust would fall from him if you shook him.

Heron's are religious birds are they not? Was it the Egyptians?

Regardless, great photo!

Your thinking of the Ibis
we have those also

Ah yes, that's right. Quite similar.

I think i prefer the this Heron ;)

On the link above the comments about Heron and the tora and bible are about them saying as religious law Christians and jews should not eat them. my friend knows that and was just making a wise crack about being supper. :-)

Haha... like a French restaurant where you select your lobster?

"I'll have this Heron please! He looks tasty."

I did a little more research and apparently the Egyptians, along with Ibis, held Herons and Hawks and many other birds in high regard. Strange then that they should also love cats :/
