The purpose of life,
patience and eat when hungry —
simple abundance

Little blue heron — I can’t believe it! (Reblog)

Looking back to March, just before transatlantic air travel became pretty impossible, we were lucky enough to get to Brazos Bend State Park. It was a delight to reacquaint with the subtle colour variations of the little blue heron. This heron is medium-sized, much smaller than the great blue, and more blue.

The heron and the swan 2 — I can’t believe it! (Reblog)

Following their previous encounter, the grey heron and the mute swan stayed around awhile at the same distance from each other, each studiously ignoring the other. This was from a vantage point further around the lake. The twigs around provide quite a pleasing foreground.
