Mount Pond: Making a Splash
More startling in large.
The heron jumped... They got on peacefully afterwards, preening and posing together. The Goosles just stayed on their island, but the heron(s), cormorant, and Cayuga on Mount Pond kept me distracted.
A variety of others are on Flickr here (or right from here).
