The Offering

So happy to see a blue heron and it was occupying this spot for a moment as the cattle egret arrives with a twig for a new nest it is building. It seems every one of the birds is moving about and cannot seem to settle for more than a minute before they venture somewhere else.

I took a ride to Taylor, Texas this weekend in hopes to see an egret or two. In the past all of the babies have grown by now and had ventured out to destinations unknown. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many cattle egrets were occupying the mating island and even along the trees on the shore. I parked my truck and used it as a blind as I watched the cattle egrets on the tree some 30 feet or so in ahead of me as I photographed and appreciated the moments. Each pose seems to bring out a human emotion in my eyes.

“When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin’ when I hold you
Don’t you know I feel the same

Nothin’ lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it’s hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain

We’ve been through this such a long long time
Just tryin’ to kill the pain, oo yeah
But love is always coming and love is always going
And no one’s really sure who’s lettin’ go today
Walking away” — Guns N’ Roses – November Rain

All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm ” — Depeche Mode – Enjoy the Silence
