Joined by a solitary heron,
I watch silently
as light begins to streak the sky.
Dawn breaks and simultaneously
this magnificent creature rises,
tucks its spindle legs
and spreads its wings to soar,
assured a new day has begun.
Photos taken this morning at dawn.
This is stunning. For me, dawn is such a grace filled, magical moment. I’m a bit envious.
Beautiful shots. They are truly magnificent creatures…especially when they take flight. The other day on a walk through a nearby conservation area, we were crossing a bridge and had the chance to watch one beneath us catch a fish.
Beautiful photos to go with your wonderful words.
You keep nice company.
