Great Blue Heron

The Great Blue Heron has taught me patience. They stand quietly still, observing their surroundings and waiting for the perfect moment to snatch up it's meal. Once they spot it, they move ever so slowly until it's time to strike. Sometimes they just pull up weeds, but other times it was worth waiting for.
