The Great Blue Heron - My totem

An afternoon jog on a frigid mid January day. The lake is partly frozen and the geese have all gone down south seeking warmer weather. Only a handful of mallard ducks lazing on the waters under the mid-day sun. I was happy to see them still there. Running a few steps along the path and what do I see .. a lone Great Blue Heron standing still in the swamp under the bridge. What a surprise! My heart soared with joy.

The numerous times this bird has greeted me on my solitary walks along the nature trail. I know the Great Blue Heron is my totem.
