Yesterday, on our way back from grocery shopping, we decided to stop by our local wildlife sanctuary. As usual, we saw many contenders for my blog post today, but the clear winner was the tricoloured heron who nonchalantly sat on the guardrail of the boardwalk. He let me get so close that I could have reached out and touched him and he never batted an eyelid.
I spoke to him softly and commiserated with him that he seemed to have only one leg. He listened patiently and then magically produced his other yellow leg from deep in his undercarriage. ” Tah-da! There you go. No worries.” 🙂
I was so relieved to see he hadn’t lost a leg, but still marvelled at how he could manage to stand on one leg for so long. When I do my ‘Golden Rooster’ pose in T’ai Chi, I can only balance for a few seconds. Maybe he could teach me a thing or two. For one thing, I’d love to learn how to take off from standing and soar up into the air. Just imagine how impressed all my friends would be.
Wishing you all a perfect weekend with lots of fun times.
