It had been way too long since I’d taken my camera and strolled along the Chattahoochee River, so this morning I decided to remedy that!
As I was walking, I had the pleasure of seeing a Great Blue Heron who seemed in no particular hurry to get his day started.
He looked rather pensive as he stared out over the river in his one-legged pose, the morning sun dancing on the water.
He did a bit of personal preening…
…and then started what must be his morning yoga routine. I’m pretty sure I tried this same pose once in Wii fitness, but I’m equally sure that I looked far less graceful!
Next he did his best impersonation of a matador – at least that’s how it looked to me – and finished the performance looking quite pleased with himself.
Finally, he returned to his leisurely river watching stance. I think there is something to be said for his unhurried pace.
As I turned to leave, a second Heron flew from around the bend, and allowed me to fire off a few Canon clicks before he disappeared out of sight.
Any day with a visit to the Chattahoochee is a good day. 🙂

Use to love spotting Herons around the area in this small town/village in b.c. I use to live in 🙂
They are mesmerizing!
A pleasurable sight indeed!!
They are so relaxing to watch!
Awesome Kathy!!! Great shots and how wonderful to see.
I still get excited whenever I see one. 🙂
Love your humor about the yoga poses! Hehe! 😊 What amazing shots you got! ❤️ Did you see any dragonflies?
I did indeed. I will try and post one later. 🙂
Omg I’ve done some of those poses lol! Wow, so so beautiful, Kathy. You are blessed and by extension, so are we, with your lovely images. I may start sketching your birds every day in my sketchbook just to make sure I draw something every day (some days, I forget). They always inspire me to pick up a pencil. I know I sound like a broken record, but thanks so much!
And I know I sound like a broken record, but the blessing is all mine – so thank you!
I do agree, the GBH can really do some fancy yoga, so gracefully! Great shots!
