Credit Where It Is Due
Credit Where It is Due
I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.
Lovely bird and beautiful reflection for the day, Dimple!! Thanks for sharing the beauty! Have a wonderful weekend!
I very much lover Great Blue Herons! Looks like s/he doesn't see you. :)
Nice catch ! Especially great for drive-by shooting. I'm just learning some of the finer points of Picassa but I couldn't live without straighten. My hands shake, even when I'm not shooting from the car.
Good shot from a moving vehicle, Dimple. I do like all that grass - must be full of food for ducks.
What an amazing shot to get from your car! Beautiful!
Lovely, - these waterways hold such precious cargo, like the heron...
Beautiful picture you show - reflection.
Wishing you a good weekend.

heron's are beautiful
my absolute favorite bird. Whenever I see them I know everything will be okay. Beautiful shot
You make me remember all the herons in Florida and how I really must go after them some day. We have lovely white egrets who wander through our backyard on a daily basis...still I haven't picked up the camera to note them.
Happy Mother's Day, Louise!
They are very skittish and difficult to photograph. Great job.
The Heron is one of my favorite birds so I just love this photo! We have one that hangs out at our neighborhood pond sometimes and I always stop to admire him/her -- but it as never let me get a photo, at least not yet. I live in hope :-)

Awesome wetland capture. Great driveby shot!
Great candid shot and kudos for stopping to catch it. I see so many but don't stop; I might not ever get where I am going.
very calm and nice :)
(Actually in flight the bird is not blue, but rather pale gray).
beautiful shot but I do not like heron :-( they eat the fish at our pond :-( Dropping by from Camera Critters
