I love the large birds. Especially herons. I’ve followed them down the Columbia River trying to capture them with my camera. Without success. I once saw a huge gathering of herons along the Yakima River, but didn’t have my camera with me. All I could do was blaze the memory into my mind. I don’t know if my memory is now exaggerated or if there really were dozens of herons along the bank of the river that day.
This rendering is done with powdered glass sandwiched between layers of sheet glass. Thanks to Gwen for calling me today about her heron piece which prompted me to post this one.
