There he was. He came flying in to the pond. He was so super shiny WHITE. We hadn’t seen him for a long time. It was really magic. Then I saw my friend walking his usual rounds around the pond and I thought the egret would be disturbed and fly away but he didn’t. So I took my camera and went down to the pond to see if I could get some pictures. The egret was opposite of the pond edge to me trying to catch his prey. He was so beautiful not even getting disturbed by us watching him. When my friend was done with his exercise and left, I was all alone with the egret who was totally focused on getting his food. I took lots of pictures but was just waiting for the egret to get closer to me. I was there with him for over an hour. The whole experience felt so divine to me. He came as close to me as may be 5 feet but he didn’t want to go passed me and then he would just fly around me to start catching his next prey again. I just kept following him and had even fun taking little video clips of him catching fish and frogs. He was very successful. Then I got eager and wanted to take a video of him flying, so I kept getting closer to him. He just walked off on the road around the pond in front of me. He didn’t mind me so I just walked faster and faster closer and then he took off and I caught him flying so beautiful in a circle around the pond lending away from me. I was so mesmerized by him and absorbing his beautiful energy.

Mother nature can show us her beauty in so many ways.
Happy Christmas Holidays to everybody!
