Artist's Description

The day before yesterday, I watched this Egret catch a fish on Coronado Bay. It stood very still, with much patience, like a cat waiting to pounce on a mouse. When the prey was perfectly poised, the Egret snatched it up out of the shallow pool of water between the rocks. It happened so fast. I got one picture as the fish flopped in its beak and another as he swallowed, but they were a little blurry from all the quick action. I liked this pic & two others.

If you follow my blog, you already know how much I enjoy observing birds and animals in their natural habitat. I find that it’s a beautiful way to “be present” in life and it’s especially healing when life is challenging. I love watching birds in flight. I’m often reminded of the book Jonathon Livingston Seagull. What a great read. I was 16 when I first fell in love with that book. I think birds really do enjoy flying. I certainly enjoy watching them. When I go to the beach, it’s the birds, as much as the waves that I enjoy watching. As we say goodbye to 2009 and hello to 2010 (aka twenty-ten & two-zero-one-zero) I leave you with this quote:

“All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.” Henry Elli

Happy New Year!
