    Hey yall,
    I had the coolest encounter with a heron this morning. He'll come up while I'm out in the canoe feeding the ducks & stays a good distance away.This morning he got brave & landed on a log about 20 ft. from me.They are so beautiful & are nothing but legs,lol.

    I had one of my dogs & a cat [​IMG] in the canoe with me, maybe the pics aren't too blurry.
    I've been playing with a watermark program for my pics,so still trying to figure it out,lol.

    Neat! We have fish cranes or herons or whatever they are called land in the creek here all the time. They just look so neat!

    Very neat, and I understand the watermark, but....too big! It takes so much away from the photos.

    I used to go to Louisianna in late winter for several years. One son lived in Ponchatoula and another lived in the French Quarter. I sure miss going. They have both since moved to southwest Missouri. It sure was nice to leave cold and snowy Michigan for several weeks. It made winter a little more bearable. Plus I really enjoyed the food. I spent many a foggy morning looking a sights just like your pictures. Thanks for the memories.

    Great photos! You live in a fantastic area [​IMG] I agree, the watermarks distract from the photo, maybe you could make them a bit more opaque? Good luck playing with it [​IMG]

    The photos are stunning (agree with others re the watermark) you truly are blessed to live in such a beautiful area, can we have more pics please as I have never been to Louisanna. Am intrigued that you paddle a canoe to feed your ducks, post a pic please, please please.
