After eyeing a Black-crowned Night Heron through binoculars for several minutes, I turned around and holy crap! There was one preening in a palm right in front of me. There were some stairs across from it, so I decided to quietly walk up them, turning back if the heron looked agitated.

The heron went to sleep.

Personally, I am very glad not to have to sleep standing on one leg on a swaying palm frond, but the heron seemed quite happy.

I go past a churchyard a lot, and they have a little seating area with a beautiful stone and brick pattern laid out on the ground, almost every stone has something different about it. This one is my favourite.

Three photos from the end of last week. The lichen covered stone stands right beside the apartment building I live in, and the stone features is a granite bust of a local dignitary from the early part of the 20th century.

I seem compelled to caption these images. What do other shutter-speedsters think? Does it modify your experience?

This is my first post here, so, uh, hi.

This was a statue type thing I found in front of the Earth Sciences building at my university.
