I believe this is a Blue Heron, but Not being an expert, I researched the Audubon website, After that research, I still THINK it is a Blue Heron.
I captured this during one of our morning walks along the Sammamish River Trail. The Blue Heron is the official bird of Seattle city - so I am hoping this guy is a Blue Heron...I shot this o a very gray morning, so the colors look muted here, ....I hope you enjoy this ;-)
** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"
- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.
::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"; Earth Wind and Fire
