Hi Doris, I was so excited to find your amazing photo this morning! I was enjoying this morning's heat when I saw a ruckus out of the corner of my eye and was stunned to see a red winged blackbird relentlessly diving towards a great blue heron that was wading in the shallow waters of the marsh under the shade of the red winged blackbird's nesting tree. The red wing would give him no peace at all so the heron had to find another place of refuge from the heat. I don't know if this is a common happening in the bird world but will say that I admired the tiny bird's boldness in light of the huge size difference. Wow!

Doris Potter replied:

Hi Deborah, I'm glad you liked my photo. It is quite something to see such a brave bird when it is so small in comparison, isn't it? I think baby red winged blackbirds should consider themselves very lucky to have such protective parents!

This is hilarious, Doris. I love it. It pays to keep an eye on nature for what it can offer. Thanks for liking one of my capture of the sparrows.

Doris Potter replied:

Sweet. Just a heron with a fish would be nice but . . . You have some really nice work.

Doris Potter replied:

Thanks so much Daniel. I appreciate your kind comment.

Wow, Doris, and how did you train this blackbird to rsvp to your every command? LOL I just love this unique image, as I have never seen anything quite like this before. Maybe it is in love, but doesn't realize its limitations! LOL This is a fantastic capture of something that only mother nature might comprehend. Thanks for sharing this unique shot with us, as it is one of my faves!

Doris Potter replied:

Or worst of all if you are the fish! Yes, the heron was surprised and annoyed I am sure!

OMG, Doris, this is such a fantastic capture! Lucky you to be near so much wildlife!

I appreciate the quality. The print was pretty small, so I was surprised it was rolled up and I had to flatten it. It would have been nice if it was flat in an envelope with cardboard support and a clear protective covers (like prints are sold at art shows). I do appreciate that artists have this resource.

I got this card for my sister's birthday and she absolutely loved it! We had our fortunes read by Zoltar Speaks when we were at Circus Circus in Reno, so she was surprised that I was able to find a Zoltar card. The quality was good and the picture was perfect. I would order from this company again!

September 21st, 2018

I never clicked on this to order! I never even looked it up! Can I please have this one refunded!

September 21st, 2018

It is beautiful. The colors are vibrant.

September 19th, 2018

September 19th, 2018

I have purchased many cards from you, and have loved them all. Just as described, great shipping, and great service. I will be shopping Christmas cards soon!

Artist's Description

A Red-winged Blackbird harasses and attacks a Great Blue Heron as it tries to eat a fish. The Blackbird had nestlings near by and felt the Heron was a threat.

About Doris Potter

My passion is to express Nature's beauty through photography. I am self-taught and like things simple. Thus, photo manipulation is kept to a minimum. The intrinsic beauty of our natural surroundings does not need enhancing; only revealing. All photos of wildlife have been taken in the wild and involve no staging. My goal is to bring out the character of an animal ... the essence of a leaf ... the spirit of all Nature. "The Sacred is clothed in fur and feathers and scales and skin - It flashes out from shining eyes in darkened woods - And speaks in bird songs and cicada serenades - It touches a place in me where wildness dwells - A long forgotten, hidden place that shivers in sudden resonance." D. Potter...
