Heron

I've had to drive from Tsawwassen to Richmond a couple of times this week and on each trip I noticed a Heron in one of the ditches by the side of the road. 
Saturday my sister and I went shopping (clothes for a 3rd round interview Monday afternoon) and this time I was not driving and I was ready with my cell phone!

He reminded me of a print I had back in Midway.


Blue Heron by Richard Shorty

In First Nations Symbology, the Heron is considered to be a very good omen representing grace, purity, patience and long life.

First Nations people took notice of the Heron’s inquisitiveness, determination and excellent judgment skills and recognize the Heron as an expert fisher and hunter.  Native people believed that sighting a Heron before a hunt was a indication that the hunt would be a victorious one.

Here we go!

I won't post as frequently as I did with Nellie's Blog, but I do like blogging and I do like sharing my photoshop experiments. I look at this a a very eclectic blog, a little of the Beary Good Stuff foodie "Stuff", animals and art.
So lets Rock and Roll!
