    Great Blue Heron

    Is it something I said?

    That you should leave

    every time I walk by?

    Or are you just giving me a wave

    with your spectacular wings!

    and that's a wrap

    Life is not easy these days.

    So hugs are important.

    especially when times are tough.

    When you become overwhelmed and you feel all alone

    Give YOURSELF a hug.

     When I'm reviewing my images I'm brought back to the moment that I took them.

    I remember exactly how I felt when I made the photograph.

    I remember the thrill of falling into the petals.

    Of seeing how the background effects the colors.

    Of the softness that I wanted to express.

    Of the energy that was all around me.

    a blue day

    I think we need something pretty to look at.

    So I went to my blues

    and got caught up in the colors of the iris

    Some intensely vibrant

    and others soft and hopeful.

    unhinged anhinga

    This is a calm dry male anhinga.

    And this is a calm dry female anhinga.

    And this is a very wet excited female anhinga in the pond on my morning walk.

    She may have been bathing,

    She may have been feeding,

    Or she may just be going a little wacky like the rest of us.

    This is how we all love to see a Bald Eagle.
    Free and on the wing.

    But this is how most of us see a Bald Eagle, 
    enclosed in some protective area. 

    I was lucky to see this Bald Eagle on my morning walk. 
    I felt as free as I could be while in his presence. 

    He took flight and disappeared in the sky while I looked on.
    Then home I went to my enclosed protective area.

    social distancing

    We shall pick up our love dove story at another time. 
    She is quietly sitting on her eggs, I check on her everyday but at a distance. 
    I don't want anyone to know where she is, as in snakes, crows, and raccoons. 
    So here we have a lovely group practicing social distancing. They are all pretty good at this. 
    One flies in and the other moves away. 
    Anhinga, green heron, snowy egret and one little blue heron.

    Decisions made

    These two love doves they have found a home amongst the bougainvillea petals.

    Mom is looking out at the view. She likes what she sees.

    And Dad is tucked in there with her. He agrees this will make a good home.
     Can you see him on the right?

    And so it was decided that they would care for each other.

    They spent the afternoon, preening and getting to know each other.

    It was time well spent.

    Life is better when you find someone to love.
