Two Creatures Great and Small

I took my little point & shoot camera (or P&S, as the photo folks say) for a walk during my morning break. I found these two critters hanging around by the ponds. The frog was quite cooperative. He sat still nicely while I snapped several photos. I was able to get within three feet or so of him. I possibly could have gotten closer if I'd stepped into the pond.

The blue heron, on the other hand, was skittish. I got one half-decent photo of him standing on the shore, but I prefer this one of him flying across the pond. Unlike the frog, he wouldn't let me get any closer than 50 feet or so.

Love the heron picture. The water is so still!
