Great Blue Heron

“Your sigh, I am told, is like the sound of rain driven against tower bells. You smell like wild ginger. When you lift your foot from the river, water doesn’t run off it to spoil the transparent surface of the shallows. The water hesitates to offend you.”

—Barry Lopez, The Search for the Heron, River Notes

Great Blue Heron, Everglades National Park.
