Hike to the Lagoon

The Great Blue Heron flew in while I was resting near the shore.
A River Otter swam and feed.
A small flock of Sandpipers flew in
I think this shore bird is a Phalarope.
Witty's Lagoon was a very busy place.

Dearest Sherry,

Oh I am so deeply touched by this picture of Great Blue Heron. It is absolutely stunning. When I sleep, I shall dream of this beautiful bird.

All of your Lagoon birds are wonderful. Thank you!

Much Love,

Dear Sprite,
The photo of the Great Blue Heron in flight is my second favorite photo of our trip. I am thinking I will print it. I see a spot in my office I could hang it. The Great Blue Heron teaches me to follow my own path and to trust my inner wisdom. Heron reminds me to stay balanced on my own two legs!
I am pleased the Heron also speaks to you.
Seeing the River Otter was a special treat for my husband and I.
They are one of our favorite animals.
Much love,
Sherry

Sherry,

I would like to frame your heron. Do you know about my relationship with Great Blue Herons? I love them, but I call them "Stinkers". They like my Koi too much :o)

XXOO

Dear Mary,
You are more than welcome to print Heron! I am honored...
I hope it prints well for you as photos off the internet are sometimes rather poor quality once they are printed. I did print Heron for my home office. Staying balanced is sometimes difficult for me as I am ever so body forgetful. I need to remember to eat and walk and all of that.
I remember how the Herons like to hunt in your pond. Sorry about that. They did not read the "no hunting" sign. My ponds are so small that Heron would not be able to even begin to hunt.
I do love them, magnificent birds.
