The Night Heron (by day) (pictures I like)


  1. I guess he's the Day Heron right now :P.

  2. I went and looked it up to read about it on Wikipedia; I'm trying to learn 1 new thing a day. The one you pictured here suffers more from extinction than any other kind of heron, because these birds tend to colonize small islands without predators on them. While that sounds like it might be ideal for survival, they then eventually evolve into flightlessness.

    So apparently having predators around is necessary to survival, if not of an individual, of the species.

    Imagine if you invented a character called "Night Heron," who would go and prey on certain individual humans in order to improve the species and keep it alive. I think someone like that ought to make an appearance in the tea kettle world.

    1. Briane: I do actually have a "night heron" story percolating in my brain. You would, too, if you'd ever seen groups of these sitting together, their heads all hunched down. But I like your idea, and I will have to come back to it.

  3. Now I can't wait to see it. Your stories get darker and better with each new one. It's like you're the evil clone of Steven Spielberg.
