Great Blue Heron

My first ever photo of a Great Blue Heron! I went out to Kensington looking for a Fox someone had spotted. No luck at all with the Fox but i saw these beauties on the dock.


A big huge Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers, plus everyones sweet messages and comments. It's been rough, but i think im ready to get back out there and do what i love.


Thanks to my Flickr friend Jeff for this bit of information about the GBH;


According to North American Native tradition, the Blue Heron brings messages of self-determination and self-reliance. They represent an ability to progress and evolve. The long thin legs of the heron reflect that an individual doesn't need great massive pillars to remain stable, but must be able to stand on one's own!


How amazing and symbolic:)
