Winged

Blue heron in my community wetlands

"The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply that they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings."

~James Matthew Barrie

(I love the birch tree reflection on the left, don't you?)

I used to see this type of bird every day in a certain park on my walks. Now, not so much. Great photo!

Great closeup of this heron. And yep, I like that birch tree reflection.

Sadly, I didn't even notice the birch reflection (which says a lot about my powers of observation!).
I did however see the platypus in the bottom right of frame!

Nice. A magnificent bird. And that they fly is wonderful. I can't imagine them going south for the winter, like the snow birds do.

Nice wetlands detail and reflections, Isabella. Really a pretty backdrop for the heron.

Pour répondre à ta question : le temps des soldes va sûrement disparaître et les magasins pourront faire ce qu'ils veulent, quand ils veulent.

To answer your question: time sale's will surely disappear and the stores can do what they want, whenever they want.

Great photo. That bird is amazing! The reflection is really crisp for having a bird walking around. Great capture.

Now i know why i can't fly, i gave up my faith 40 years ago. i have been trying and trying to fly since then, can't even lift my body one inch above the ground.

I have often been flying - but only in my dreams! Beautiful photo! Do you have birch trees in Florida?
