Great Blue Heron - now that the lake is low

What an amazing bird!  I love watching blue herons!

What a LONG neck!

I love watching them but have to use my zoom lens and be careful to move VERY slowly.  They're very skittish.

There's something about them... they look prehistoric... and are fascinating to watch

Lake Afton's new wall begins!

The second trenched area as another section of retaining wall foundation begins.

Labor intense work!

Looks pretty deep.

As the lake water rises back to normal only the top layer of the stone wall shown in this picture will be seen.  When it's all done, there will be another couple of layers of smaller stones on this wall edge.  Exciting stuff!
