I was driving through the park one day.
In the merry, merry month of May.
I was taken by surprise,
By a pair of roguish eyes.
In the merry, merry month of May. 🙂
Actually, I was driving through our downtown city park on the Concho River. I had just finished photographing some young Great Blue Heron chicks on their nest. I happened to glance across the river, and there was this (here it comes) pair of roguish eyes of a Black-crowned Night Heron looking at me.
Here it is sitting in the tree branches contemplating this beautiful day in May.
He gets alerted to something. He stands up on the tree branch and looks around. (with those roguish eyes, of course.)
Whatever has distracted him has made him restless, and he decided to fly away on a lovely day in the merry, merry month of May.
