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. 🙂
