Great Blue Herons

It's the weekend!!!!  I couldn't decide where to go first.  I headed to Wayland to check out the Cow Commons (don't you just love historic New England?), but got side-tracked on Route 9.  Earlier in the week, I had noticed that the water had been drained out of the reservoir on the south side of Route 9 and there were several herons fishing in there.  I had wanted to go back.....and this was just my chance. I parked up by Temple Street and walked back down to the bridge.

Meanwhile, on to Cow Common!  Cow Common looked like it had great possibility, but when I got there, there were unleashed dogs running about and I immediately lost my nerve.  I saw a couple butterflies before the dogs came back to the parking lot side of the meadows.....but that was it for me.  No walking here.  Sorry!  

The view!
