Green Heron In Mid Air
According to All About Birds, from a distance, the Green Heron is a dark, stocky bird hunched on slender yellow legs at the water’s edge, often hidden behind a tangle of leaves. Seen up close, it is a striking bird with a velvet-green back, rich chestnut body, and a dark cap often raised into a short crest. These small herons crouch patiently to surprise fish with a snatch of their daggerlike bill. They sometimes lure in fish using small items such as twigs or insects as bait.

Landscape Lake Tahoe
Around the corner from Emerald Bay there is a beach presenting this lovely view. I remember being concerned about the snow storm that was coming towards us. We actually took this image and the wind picked up. We had to get out of there. And we did, but the ride back to the hotel was a little bit scary. We couldn’t see much of the road ahead of us. But we made it!
