Patience of a Heron

I was walking past a pond one morning and was honored to catch this heron doing some fishing. I'm not a professional photographer by any means, but I just kept taking shot after shot and was pleasantly surprised when I downloaded my photos to my computer and found this close-up of my friend catching his breakfast. Of course I couldn't stop there. I had to play a while adding my embellishments. :)

Couldn't we learn alot about patience from our friend, the heron?

"Smallest" Friday Blessings to you, Marsha

P.S. Visit for other small blessings to be thankful for.

What a great picture, and I love the embellishment you put on it. It is a lesson in patience. Thanks for stopping by my linen post. We don't have a Horchow store near us either, but all these wonderful sales are on line. Just go to and there are so many gorgeous things to see. I love all their stuff. Hope you have a great weekend. Hugs, Marty
