The Great Heron III

The Heron is possibly one of a few of my favorite birds to photograph. They are trusting and calm, yet intuitive and quick to take action, always alert.

There is an essence of spirit and enlightenment observing them in their natural habitats.

Strength, life longevity, purity, wisdom, creation, and a messenger of the gods. The Heron stand still in the marsh. Long black stick legs, steady and slow until the fish is targeted. One quick stab of the long orange beak awards this bird it’s nutrition. It’s nest are high in the trees. It’s flight graceful and smooth across the marsh. Aware and in tune, ready to act. I feel at peace each time I am honored and blessed with their presence.
