By the River 1 of 2

We went down to the river in the evening to see what we could spy.  Isn't s/he lovely.


  1. Very delicate. But what bird is that? I am on a train so not able to meander over to the bird-book shelf. Love the spindly legs.

  2. It looks like a blue Heron to me. I love his little foot lifting off. A super clear shot.

  3. I like how you captured the bird in action. Just as good as capturing one in flight.

  4. What a gorgeous image, Joan! Great capture.

  5. According to my sources, it's a White-necked Heron (previously called Pacific Heron). Such a beautiful line of neck, wing and leg!

  6. absolutely beautiful... great capture.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
