Great Blue Heron In Flight


Be like the bird in flight . . . pausing a while on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, yet sings knowing yet, that she has wings.
— Victor Hugo

I miss these birds so much. They were a regular staple when we lived above the pond on the horse farm, and now I rarely get to see them. Lovely, Kerri.

That's a great shot. I love seeing them in flight.
I saw the one at the lake this morning. He was at the edge of the water sleeping.

One of my favourite birds. Beauty in motion.

Seeing him in flight is some spectacle. Elegant but powerful, know that those wings will carry him safely around.
Lovely shot, Kerri

Wonderful shot of the Heron. I love that quote. The choir at our church sings that. I've always liked the song but didn't know that it was a Victor Hugo quote.
