Courage is fire; bullying is smoke by 

I took this photo of two herons in a cypress tree, one bullying the other into submission. When I found this quotation by Benjamin Disraeli, I thought it was a marriage made in heaven, the picture and the words, that is. So here it is. Thought it could suit many purposes as there are lots of bullies and bullied ones in this world.

    Nice words and image for sure Bonnie. That one heron is so tall, and the other one is so small from cowering. Maybe there was a female near by. Excellent work.

    I agree with the school classroom comment…………there is way too much bullying going on………….and, alot of times, where there is smoke, there’s no fire…………….just a lot of low self esteem!
