Just Out for a Ride

And spotted this guy resting on a line where some utility crosses a creek

Its a  blue Heron I believe

Usually they are standing in the water but recent rains have raised the level

No bicycle in photo, I was lucky to get the photo — usually they instantly fly away

I was riding a Raleigh, so that’s kinda neat

The next day 7/8/19 Heron is back — had just landed as I approached

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Nice shot! I never noticed Raleigh had a bird on its badge. Cool!

    Several years ago I bought a 1973 Raleigh Sports with the 3 speed Sturmey Archer internal hub. It was beautiful but I didn’t ride it that much, so ended up selling it.

    Definitely a great blue heron. Unusual to see one perched on a line like this.
