Great Blue Heron Contest Winners!

Everyone who attempted to answer the question(s) was entered in a drawing for the prizes.

First the names went on two lists:

The List of EntrantsThe Lurkers on the top half of the page,  and  The Veterans on the bottom.

Then I printed the list, cut the names in strips, and folded them in fourths. The HatNext, I put them in my Grand Isle Ladies Fishing Rodeo hat.  It is pink.  See?

First, Jeremiah drew a name for the Lurkers . . .

And then Termite chose the Veteran.

Congratulations, Kelly!  Please email me your mailing address so Blair can ship your prize ASAP.  Oh, and let me know what kind of coffee you want.

OH!  Congratulations, Susie CR.  I know it’s not a night in the camp, but you get a little taste of Louisiana this way!  Please email me the kind of coffee you want and your mailing address.

Everyone was correct.  It was a Great Blue Heron.  Your guess is as good as mine as to the gender.  My guess is a young female.

Thank you all for participating.  Next post, all comments will be entered into random drawing and no contest will be involved.  All you have to do is comment.

Coming soon . . . more Wetland Tour photos straight from the marsh and swamp and maybe a poem.  Yes, the Bayou Woman does wax poetic from time to time.

  1. Love the wildlife photos but let’s see some food shots soon! What’s an autumn dish down your way? Oh yes and Congrats to the winners!

  2. Congratulations to the winners.
    Oysters, shrimp, yummy! Hubby likes gator but, I can’t acquire a taste for it.
    Mom called me yesterday and she had spent the day on the river where it feeds into the lake north of here. Said she had a nice stringer of sand bass & catfish to clean. She is stocking her freezer for the winter! She also saw some deer tracks and wild boar tracks along with a flock of geese. Wish she knew how to operate a camera!

  3. Hey, I placed a comment this morning. What happened to it? It was nice. I wrote earlier how I liked the wildlife photos and would also like to see a food photo shoot (with the recipe of course). Corn and shrimp soup was also mentioned earlier too. I think I’m going to make some tomorrow (if I’ve recovered from tonight). We have all 8 grandchildren ages 4-8. Yes, before anyone ask….we’ve a few loose screws!

    1. Steffi, I’m just getting here and I don’t see your comment anywhere. I’m sorry it got lost in cyber space somewhere! I love it when you write, “nice” comments! LOL! Better tighten those screws so you can fish for trout soon! I don’t think I mentioned that kind of soup, but I did mention “redfish chowder”!

  4. I mentioned making Corn and Shrimp soup in my comment that’s out in cyberspace somewhere. Easy to make, and delicious too. Good thing it’s quick and easy. I’m pooped, Hubby’s pooped, the dog’s pooped, and the cat is still in hiding!

  5. Termite and I need to have a long chat! Did someone not tell him it was National Indian Day and therefore he was supposed to give MrsCoach presents? Tsk, tsk. LOL
