Nice sunrise at Hammond Bridge this morning. Joined by a handsome heron, who posed while I walked from one side of him to the other, and even behind him to have the sunrise in the background. I thought he was just holding up one leg to strike a pose, but when I looked at the photos later I realized that his left foot was essentially gone. Poor guy.
A young man also stopped on the bridge to drink his coffee and watch the sunrise. He said that he knew he was young yet, but he hoped that one day he would find someone who would also love the sunrise. I told him that I’d hate to calculate how many sunrises I missed in my life. Nice to see a young person taking time to appreciate what nature has to offer.
