Learning to fly by Heather King

I am in love with this juvenile night heron♥ He is so sweet and innocent and timid. We have decided to name him Sebastian.
There is such a beautiful heart melting innocence about this little one that one just can’t help but to become smitten:)

When he grows up he will look exactly like this

    When I see Sebastian all I can hear in my head is this song……

    Little hope, little home of heavenly
    Come and save us from this ugly truth
    Little hope, sprung from necessity
    May all good things in life come to you

    Little ghost, so innocent and carefree
    They would never stop hunting you
    Little voice, life got the best of me
    And in time that’s what awaits you too

    Little hope, sing a song of fire
    I grow up to be just like that
    (little hope, little hope)
    Sing a song of fire
