This amazing photo was used today, 4 March 2021, to help illustrate the Great Blue Heron article in Opus.

Your generosity and sharing of your images is appreciated very much.

Thanks

Thank you Barney...happy to share, and also to learn of the Opus. I'm still sort of learning my way around the forum and online media sharing in general - I admit I don't have a big online presence or long experience with it so I'm really bad at all the 'friending' and 'thumbs up' that is expected - I'm trying to learn. I hadn't known of the Opus until others made reference to it, and have begun to browse through - quite a nice resource!
