fishing great blue heron

fishing heron

patience and calm can be good attributes, waiting for the right moment to seize. this great blue heron was so still and patient, ready to stand for a long period, waiting for the perfect opportunity to reach and snap up a little fish. he was also standing on a floating bed of kelp, seemingly quite stable on an unstable surface, floating at least 20 ft from the ocean floor. finding a moment of zen despite his precarious position, able to focus on his goal even when he didn't quite know when he would achieve it.

perhaps i could learn a bit from mr. heron.

Think we could all learn a bit from Mr Heron. There is something so serene about them.

Yes, there's a lot to learn from animals in general. Heron is so elegant! Thank you for your words to my last post, K. I really appreciated them.
