Early one morning last week I found a nice colorful scene on a dike separating the Ashley River from old rice fields.
A Great Blue Heron was perched a top a wooden piling looking out over the river. The morning sun gave everything a nice gold color.
This dike is being repaired in what is becoming a yearly event. The dike is almost a mile long and has been standing between the river and rice fields for around 200 years.
I guess Herons have been standing here for just as long.
Ashley River, South Carolina.
