Old Blue, our heron-in-residence, was kind enough to allow me to inch somewhat closer for a slightly better photo. I don’t consider myself or my little point-and-shoot camera a threat to his livelihood or reputation, but he evades me like I’m some member of the paparazzi trying to catch him in an unseemly pose. Or perhaps he suspects that I’m some undercover operative for Carp Unlimited or Crawdads Forever, gathering evidence against him. I wish I could explain to him that I’m just a fan!
“As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.” –PROVERBS 27:19 (NIV)
