The Unhurried Heron

There is a secluded lake at the end of our neighborhood, and every once in awhile I sit with my camera in one of the backyards (with permission, of course) that overlooks this great place for bird watching.

The other day, I saw this Great Blue Heron creeping through the water in search of its morning meal.  It was refreshing to be still and watch this fellow as he slowly put one foot in front of the other.

Taking pictures of this unhurried Heron blessed me with some time to be unhurried too, and that’s always a good thing. 🙂
