Beautiful Great Blue Heron Takes Advantage of Gravity
Sunlight streams on the river stones.
From high above, the river steadily plunges–
three thousand feet of sparkling water–
the Milky Way pouring down from heaven.
From Crossing the Yellow River: Three Hundred Poems from the Chinese by Sam Hamill
Thanks to Ben H and WordPress for hosting the Weekly Photo Challenge: Weightless. It’s not just water that cascades over the lip of this dam on the Charles River – the tug of gravity pulls with it hapless fish destined to become dinner for an eagle-eyed Great Blue Heron.
A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.
Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.
