GREAT BLUE HERON 10" x 10" Watercolor

March 23, 2010 - BABY WATCH. Spring has finally come to the lake. Just north of Red Bud Isle, great blue herons have built four large nests in the treetops. And on the small island in front of them the female swan is laying on their nest, while the male swan patrols the waters in front of it. Babies should be arriving in about a month.

March 1, 2010 - AFTER THE RAIN. The glow of morning light pushes the clouds away. After an early rain shower, the lake is bathed in a fine mist and the scent of fresh air.
