I had no time to go out with my camera today but since my husband managed to spend a little time at the beach with his camera this morning, we decided we would share the blog this year. Hopefully we will then be able to keep up with the challenge.
Although the sunrise was lovely it was this shot of a heron that I liked the best. Having spent a lot of my life around water, the heron has always been a favourite bird of mine and this one sat so patiently while he sought the best angle to photograph him from. I think it would have been a quieter moment without being pursued by a photographer, but he looks very pensive nonetheless.
