This Space for Rent


My sister in law Anna lives in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, and as a hobby kayaks around in the bayous near where she lives. She, sensibly, carries a camera, and occasionally gets the chance to take pictures of the local wildlife, which she then posts on her weblog.

Like, for instance, this picture of a blue heron launching itself from a piling. Yes, I'm sitting here gaping at this picture. I didn't know that herons just sort of toppled over forward to take off from a post, though I suppose it makes sense.
