Solitude and Engagement

Encouragement arrived this morning in the form of a Snowy Egret, a Pelican and a Dolphin. The Snowy Egret so splendid in his solitude. The dolphin and pelican spontaneously playing.. engagement. I enjoyed this so much it was like a tonic, providing some relief from the current pressing concerns in NZ.

Location: Gulf Coast, Texas USA (I got the location from the post comments)

“I also catch this snowy egret, perched on a post and huddled against the wind. He too, ignores my lens, and as he turns his head, I get a good closeup of that feathery mane.”

The dolphin’s a tease and the pelican’s a good sport – here’s the link to their story:

  1. It just breaks my heart what happened in Christchurch. I’ve been thinking about NZ a lot lately. I’m glad you were able to find some positive feelings in these encounters!

    1. Thanks Tanja. We’ve just walked in the door from having a little break outside. I’d noticed some roadside pink wild carrot flowers (Achillea) from the car yesterday and Nigel drove me back there – we’ve both been taking photographs with his cellphone camera. If any turn out well I’ll be posting them in the near future 🙂
