Silent Sunday: The Vigil

A Great Blue Heron standing guard over the remains of another one who had evidently met an untimely death. There were dozens of people on the boardwalk taking photos, but he seemed oblivious as he stood there absolutely motionless. I felt so sad for him, as he was obviously grieving and didn’t want to leave his mate. I wonder how long his vigil lasted.

Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday.

Silent Sunday: A Close Encounter

A beautiful Blue Morpho butterfly came to check the time on hubby’s watch. It stayed attached for quite a while until it decided it was time to take off again.

Wishing you all a happy last Sunday of the year.

Silent Sunday: Anyone Missing A Feather?

On my nature walk this morning, I came upon this feather someone had stuck in the boardwalk guard-rail. A Forrest Gump moment which made me think of this quote,

“I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like  on a breeze, but I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happening at the same time.”

Happy Sunday everyone.

 

Silent Sunday: Forsaken and Forlorn

Decrepit old girl

Neither use nor ornament

Dies alone unmourned

Hard to believe that this rusty old wreck was once someone’s pride and joy. Now here it stands, decaying, forgotten and abandoned. Not a very dignified end, methinks.

Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday.
