The Gate Keeper

    Newer Older

    A very calm Egret watching over his parts of the channel In Charlestown , RI (US). He was a big one and proud at that. Calm warm waters with plenty of dinner. OH, and I can't forget the dog that I was told chases all the birds but has never caught one. I think the birds like messing with the dog's mind :).

    A breath taking evening!
