We live in suburban Boston (Lexington) so our wildlife consists mainly of squirrels, chipmunks, various songbirds, and the occasional possum or raccoon. One day though I looked out and saw this perched on top of our screened tent.
My first thought was "Oh cool! We have a Great Blue Heron in our back yard." Then I remembered our fish pond and thought "Oh sh*t! We have a Great Blue Heron in our back yard."
"[A scientific theory] describes Nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And it agrees fully with experiment. So I hope you can accept Nature as She is - absurd."
