Wings in the clouds

Great blue heron
Sun breaks in blue skies were sandwiched between a storm front to the east and towering clouds to the west. Just before sunset, we see groups of birds heading back down the ridge to the Nisqually delta. Tonight there were herons, eagles, and a lone Northern harrier. These herons were quite a ways off but I loved the interplay of wings and clouds.

The tree swallows and barn swallows have returned to the ridge, which means mosquitoes are not far behind.
