    Kentucky river palisades

    Small adventure to see the Blue Heron Rookeries located at the Kentucky River Palisades

    Took some back roads to get there.... unexpected surprise, a small ferry...



    (cell phone cam)


    Waiting to board the Dixie Bell for the 3 hr dinner cruise down the Palisades





    It was soon obvious that I was not eguipped for good pics of the rookery, just too far and being dusk, too little light...
    (I never seen so many 2 foot long L series Canon lenses in one place before LOL.... I felt so inadaquate LOL)






    The nest were full of young Blue Heron's. I saw some nest with as many as 3 young ones. Many were excercising their wings wanting to fly.

    Very cool day trip...

    Thanks for looking and Santa..... I want a 2 foot long L series Canon for Christmas pleaseeeeeeeeeee
    LOL

    VERY cool Butch. We don't see them too often anymore up here. Bunch of Sandhill Cranes, but the herons seem to stick around the Great Lakes more.

    Sounds like an awesome experience, thanks for sharing.
    I should say something witty or remarkable but that would only prove my worth to society. To that I say meh!
