What an adorable family portrait!!

Phil Slade said...

Those whistlers are so clever. Adopting a Great Blue Heron as a bodyguard is pretty smart tactics.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That's sweet. Like how they all get along and those Whistler's always like to be in a row! I guess when we say we are "getting our ducks in a row" they must be Whistler's......

Jacquelineand.... said...

One of these is not like the other one!lalala

Uncle Heron is definitely having a bad hair day.

Barb Brookbank said...

Love it!

Midmarsh John said...

Brilliant timely capture.

Mike @ A Bit About Britain said...

Fabulous! Loved the squirrel shots in the previous post too - really excellent.

Daniel LaFrance said...

Interesting that they grouped themselves up as they did. Wonderful capture, Tex!

Ms. A said...

Hahaha... Uncle sticks out like a sore thumb! Reminds me of me, in my family. I'm always the one that looks like a homeless bag lady.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Someone is not with the program.

Ruth Hiebert said...

I love this shot. Your birds do know how to pose for you.

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Somebody has to make sure the whistlers don't fall into the water ;) And I think he's doing a great job!
Have a fine Sunday

Made by KKann said...

Nice line - they are all so cute.

You must have continual entertainment, and fun to watch the Whistler babies grow up too. I like the peachy bills and illusion of bent legs from the reflections in the water.
