Avian Royalty

I saw a Giant Blue Heron in my pond yesterday and it absolutely took my breath away for the regal way it walked: deliberate and purposeful, not at all hurried -- and also for the sheer beauty of it's blue and white plumes and the jagged feather bib it wore. Graceful, tall, and yet, demure -- it was the Princess Di of the avian world.
