A Languid Grace

Sometimes in stillness –¬†
When no one is looking -
She unfurls herself.
A languid grace.


This week’s photo challenge is fray. Thanks to John G and WordPress for this topic.

Well our injured pink friend is still around the area and he seems to be recovering fairly well with his wounds.

He is behaving as normal, hanging out and feeding with his friends including a tricolored heron and a cormorant. 53 more words

Wildlife Photography

babsje reblogged this on Babsje Heron and commented:

Last year, I wrote about an injured Great Blue Heron surviving and thriving after a partial amputation to its wing in "Wherein He Gets the Girl". This year, the wonderful photographer and blogger Phil Lanoue has been chronicling the recovery of an injured Spoonbill in a salt marsh there. Not only are Phil's photos always excellent, Phil really cares about his subjects. There are photographers who mainly care about "getting the shot," without seeming to care much about the wildlife in their captures. Not Phil. That is something I really respect in a nature photographer. I rarely reblog, but am moved by Phil's photos and words about the denizens of his salt marsh, and especially about one particular Spoonbill.
