On Friday in a very urban area of NW Houston we saw an enormous Great Blue Heron. The biggest that I have ever seen. There are a lot of creeks in the area designed to carry away heavy rain runoff into the area bayous, and apparently the wildlife take advantage of these natural areas.
I sketched the heron later at home using a photo I took this past spring on the coast. Then added notes and a doodle of my hand writing the notes in church on Sunday.
