My friend and I almost missed this heron roosting in a tree as we walked by with our cameras in hand. The tree branches hid him from our view as we hiked along the Klickitat River near the Columbia River.
His white head should have caught our attention as we passed but it was tucked low, next to his gray body. His salmon colored beak stands out against the gray cold background and his golden eye looks straight ahead.
In profile, he has one leg tucked in while roosting one legged on a textured tree branch. I can feel the frigid temperature each time I look at this winter photograph of a heron sitting in a tree.
My art photography reflects the joy I find in nature. This image has been printed onto an all-occasion note or greeting card that is blank inside, ready for your personal message. Your recipient will delight in your thoughtfulness as they open this card from you.
Please note, my watermark will not be on your note card. Monitor color calibrations vary from screen to screen. Colors in print may not match your computer screen.
The all occasion greeting card is left uncoated on the inside, making it easier to write on. The image is printed on thick 16pt, FSC credited paper stock that has a light satin coating. The card measures 4.13" x 5.82". Plain white envelope included.
Shipped in protective bubble envelope. Usually shipped the same day or following business day. Free shipping in the US.
My original art photography note cards are a great gift for those who love nature, birds, particularly herons, the outdoors, and fine art photography. They can also be framed and used as wall decor anywhere you need to add a bright spot of interest.
Metal prints and canvas wraps also available. If you are interested in a larger format, please send me a note; I can turn this image into a print on canvas or metal in any size.

I've been a hobbyist photographer since I was ten years old when I received a Kodak Instamatic camera for my birthday. As an adult my favorite cameras have been Nikon and my favorite content is nature. Flowers and birds abound in my extensive Northwest garden and are a constant source of inspiration.
