Artist's Description

This is how far away the heron was, Kristy spotted him.

I have always wished for a close encounter with a heron, today this wish was granted! Thank you Larry Baker!!!! Each day my wonderful friend Larry makes a wish for me to see a feathered friend, and today it came true! I always wish for him to have a close encounter with a feathered friend, and 2 days ago he did with a bald eagle!!!
I knew I had to try and get as close to this heron as possible. I am in love with birds, and this was the first day I was able to be out in nature in months.
With amazing help from my best friend Kristy♥ I rolled up my pant legs and ventured into the water. I got within 8 feet of this beautiful creature. I spoke to him the entire time, telling him how handsome he is, and then I thanked him♥ This photograph is not enlarged or cropped, is straight from the camera.
I kept telling myself “you can do this, you will not fall, you will not drop your camera, this heron will let you get close to him, this was meant to be, and if you want this bad enough, it is possible”. Then I thought on a larger scale the entire time in reference to my battle with lyme, so I also kept saying “if you want your life back, to be healthy again, you can do it, you will do it, you can do anything”.
This is dedicated to Larry Baker and Kristy Lockart.
