Heron Sightings

luke and will-1

The sun was shining brightly with a light breeze as we walked the beautiful, sparsely populated beach at Fort DeSoto County Park near St Petersburg, Florida.  Stopping just before the end of the island we watched dolphins swimming just offshore.  Rounding the point we came upon a couple of fishermen with the usual accompaniment of a heron and an egret waiting for a free handout or stolen morsel.  After snapping a picture (left) we continued on.  As we were walking I remembered the following poem I had written about a solitary heron that stayed aloof from human interaction.
