Black-crowned Night Heron Juvi

It was a sunny, crisp morning. The wind kicked up a bit and the dogs were frisky in the cooler temps. On the way back from our morning walk I spotted five Great Egrets and a couple of Black-crowned Night Heron juvi's roosting in the trees along the pond near our home.

I hurried the dogs into the house as I knew I needed to give myself a treat before I spent this beauty of a fall day indoors.... 

Today is the day I get to purge and reorganize  my studio to make way for an elliptical. I'm so looking forward to exercising but really not in the mood to go through my ever growing pile of papers.  I think I inherited the piling syndrome from my Mom. The art of procrastination.... well, I developed that all by myself!

A few minutes later, art bag, bins and chair in tow, I found only a couple of night herons and an Anhinga left in the trees. No matter. Plenty of visual goodies to choose from.

I added the pen work and white feather dots after I moved the furniture around in my studio. Now I'm taking a break from the purge....  a girl has to have some fun :)

Have a great weekend and don't forget to turn your clocks back tonight!
