Great Blue Heron - Josephine

                        As this old heron walked cautiously by, the dim light of dusk yielded an
               other worldly blue plumage. He judged me no threat and I judged him a wise old
                  bird, unerring in his intent, even in my presence. As he made his solitary way
                        into the distance I felt an affinity with those who live and die in nature.
                                 He posed for a moment, then disappeared into the shadows.
