weekly photo challenge…silhouette

This blue heron stood on the boat launch dock at Front Street Park in Melbourne, FL bright and early in the morning a few weeks ago…he was looking for his breakfast, and I was looking at him, silhouetted by the orange glow of the sunrise over the Indian River.

This dude was standing at the water’s edge, still for the longest time, before taking a stretch for himself and trying again to catch himself some lunch. I felt like I was watching heron tai-chi…graceful and purposeful, he did not care that I watched him.
