A PG-rated look at my golf, astronomy, humor, photos, and poetry

I was on my pier taking film pictures through my 8-inch reflector telescope one day when this heron appeared over the tops of the marsh grass. He was molting or something and kept pecking at his feathers with his beak, leaving himself looking rather scruffy. I decided to use his picture for a sketch, and after a few tricks with the scanned photo image in Adobe Photoshop this is what came out.
I kinda like it and gave small framed prints of him to almost everybody I know for Christmas a few years ago.
