 Tide was way out this afternoon, and there is a White-faced Heron, way out there, too.  Let's zoom across some then....

I love a rocky shore. Very beautiful scenery and terrific shots of the heron.

Great shots. If your herons are like ours then you were lucky to get such a variety of poses; ours stand stock-still for hours!

You are fortunate to live near the sea. I also like the way you locate the place I terms of coordinates. Enjoy your nice fall. Hopefully, you won't have a winter like ours has been.

I can almost smell that salty air!

Beautiful photographs of the Heron, Carole!

Looks like scrambling across those rocks would be slippery business.
