This is a popular fishing spot for egrets, but I sat about 15 feet from this one for over an hour and he never caught a thing. Later, I realized that the bed of cypress needles I had been sitting on leaked sap all over my boots and jeans. Fun times! :/
Sometimes with all my faults, I wonder how anyone can love me. I tend to zero-in on a flaw and think that's all others see. Although I cropped the photo down to show you, I do not focus on this bird's deformity; I see only his beautiful white feathers, the sunny yellow splashes of color, and his determination to survive. God says we are fearfully and wonderfully made; maybe I need to focus more on the "wonderfully" part.
