  1. I thought that’s what it was! A blue heron. How lovely. Maybe you see them often? I don’t. We have Red Hawks, Caracas, Hoot Owls, Great Horned Owl (these I only get to hear, but one drops a feather now and then)…and all the other little ones, golden finches, titmice, chickadees, cardinals, scrub jays and on and and on… I simply love birds. I have multiple feeders and water out for them always. do you?

    1. Yes, GBH are a common sight in NC. I live close to several small lakes and I usually see one fishing near the water’s edge. We also have green herons which are so fun to watch. I adore birds–all of them. I’m particularly mesmerized by hawks and owls; we have both here. Our neighborhood lake is also home to a swan that I’m fond of. I think he may be in a couple of my blog posts. I have several feeders and bird baths. Also a few bird houses in my garden. All wildlife is welcome here–deer and fox included! I collect all of the feathers I find and keep them on my meditation altar. There are so many different sizes, colors, textures. They’re simply beautiful!

    1. Hi D! Thanks for your kind comments. There is something very zen in that picture-nature is so magnificent! The bird is a Great Blue Heron and it’s one of my favorites to photograph. I’m glad I found your blog, art, and poetry; I look forward to reading/enjoying more of it.

  3. These are beautiful photos. I just returned from a few days at our cabin in the San Juan Islands here in the Pacific Northwest, where I’ve been going since I was six, and your photos remind me that being in and enjoying nature is wordless.

    1. Thank you! Being able to immerse oneself in nature for an extended period is a wonderful treat and healthy necessity. I’ve never been to the PNW, but hear it is a true nature paradise. I was having coffee just today with a dear friend from Seattle; I keep “threatening” to come stay with her so I can enjoy that beautiful area (the gardens!!).
