Did I See That?

A  L  O  H  A !
Driving along in my automobile.
Wait! Was that...!?

" You can't drive straight 

on a twisting lane. "

                         Russian Proverb











Horrible light for a shot! 
But interesting 
serpentine shape,
n'est-ce pas?


Not "Over there" or 
"on the median" but 
right there on 
the sidewalk where 
I walk every day,
A Heron!
















Step into the 
shadow please. . . .
GOT you! (Sort of)



















Hurry On Heron

"It's not what you 
look at that matters, it's 
what you see."
                           Thoreau


Hey!

I see egrets here often in the roadside ditches. They don't seem much bothered by cars.
