There weren't many people at Jericho beach yesterday when I walked Black Jack, sometime around noon. On our way to the rabbit bushes, I saw these two herons watching over their world. I scooped Black Jack under my left arm, not wanting to pay the $2000 fine for dogs on the beach, and snapped photos with my right hand, as best I could. This camera is a lot heavier than the last one (which is still at the repair shop), and the herons were entertaining for a long time. My hand began to shake, and I finally sat on the next log next to the closest heron, putting Black Jack on my knee. All of their postures reminded me of human actions, which I was going to post here. However, I wondered if any readers might like to post their own captions or interpretations of the herons' body language. I promise to leave a comment with mine tomorrow. Note: All the pictures except for the last one are of the closer heron, and they are posted in the order taken.
