About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

Thanks for the morning giggle! I'd be asking the same question I'm afraid!! Terrific shot as always, Martha! Hope you have a wonderful day!

I did not get to see how he solved his dilemma, I turned to get the video camera and when I turned back the heron was gone.

Awesome shot! I picture him throwing it up in the air, opening wide, and swallowing it whole after catching in his mouth!

Jo Bryant said...

Cool capture of the heron with the snake. I have seen them eat snakes.

Great! and a perfect caption!

Barb said...

You come upon the best shots, Martha! This is just fabulous, though the snake probably doesn't think so! (Hope Jules is feeling A-OK.)

Head first? Brilliant moment frozen in time.

Gaelyn said...

I would love to see it try.

Scott said...

I'll bet he had not trouble at all getting that down. I wonder if it tickled in his tummy for a while though.

Sorry I've been gone, my blog disappeared while I was in New England. I've put up a new one here to keep up for now.

Arija said...

Ha, I'd say whack it and whack it and whack it and then swallow it. Great catch.
