Great Blue Heron Doesn’t Let A Broken Leg Get Her Down
Break a Leg and Carry On ??
Worst-case scenario thoughts abounded as the photos downloaded that day.
Look closely at the Great Blue Heron’s left leg. Notice the extra bend?
I was really alarmed to see that broken leg.
Later on, I reviewed some older photos of that same Heron and realized the break had been there for some time.
The photos shown here are all of that same magnificent Great Blue Heron, taken over a period of three years after the photo at the top of this post.
Thanks again to Ben H and WordPress for their recent WPC Challenge: Resilient. No big-ticket Orthopedic Surgeon bills, no crutches, and no fancy orthopedic boot for this Heron. Nature has a way of healing her own. Wildlife needs to be resilient – like this Great Blue Heron – in order to survive.
From July 1 through July 30, 2016, I was the Featured Artist of the Month at the Summer Street Gallery. The Great Blue Heron photographs once again graced the walls of the lobby and theater in a one-woman show at The Center for Arts in Natick. In addition to the visual arts shown at the gallery, TCAN has a lively, dynamic lineup of upcoming performing artists.
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.
