Driving down the road by the river, I spotted a flash of white. What was it...a plastic bag, a handkerchief?
It was a Great White Heron! Partly hidden by bare tree limbs and on the other side of a fence. I don't think he even spotted us.
“It is a negligence of the mind not to notice how at dusk heron comes to the pond and stands there in his death robes, perfect servant of the system, hungry, his eyes full of attention, his wings pure light.”
Well spotted Gini, love the photos and the quote from one of my favorites.
It is a big white heron and a beautiful one.
Those eyes make him look very intense. Nice spot and wonderful quote.
Simply gorgeous!!! Excellent photos Ginny
we have had a couple of these stand in the front yard, back when we had ground cover, and the quote is what he was doing. he froze in place and watched for lizards and suddenly would pounce
forgot to say the quote is perfect for him, beautiful photos
Wonderful capture, Ginny. It has been so long since I have seen one.
It is a beautiful bird. Great photos.
That's a beauty!
Awwwww... how beautiful!! ~Andrea xoxo
Beautiful.. and I like Mary Oliver too. :-)
Great find of the white heron there in the branches.
And a perfectly matching Blog Look!!!!!!
That must have been exciting to see.
Okay I thought Herons were in Florida - we don't have them here at all. You are so lucky.
Such beautiful photos !
They are such elegant birds! You got some great photos!
What a gift this was for you to see the Great White Heron. I have another blog friend who uses Mary Oliver quotes quite often. They are delightful, aren't they?
