A Tricolored Heron, and a quote....


Another photo from the archives.  In January 2014 we were in Florida.  This photo was taken in the Everglades.  Gregg and I love a good journey and the quote fits us perfectly.

I agree wholeheartedly with this quote, dear Denise, and I always try and enjoy each moment and each day. Your photo is beautiful and the quote is something we all need to do.

Rose said...

fabulous shot!
and this is a great quote...I may have heard it before but not sure. But It can be applied to so much. I am trying to learn to apply it to so much...in fact I just finished a post at my Pics & Pieces blog and in it was saying I am trying to slow down and just enjoy the whole process of making a dress for Lorelei.

A great closeup Denise! I love that quote. As I get older I try to remember this message even just going to the grocery store. Even little things along the way can be special moments.

Great quote! I think people who focus on the journey are much happier than those who only see the destination. Just sayin!

Quite a formidable bird!

Best quote to follow too. I would welcome a trip this year to somewhere warm. I'm about at my wit's end when it comes to winter. So ready for spring and warmth!

Ginny said...

A blue heron? So awesome!! It looks like you are right there! Yes, the journey is the most important thing of all. If we live it right, our destination will be fabulous.

Kay said...

We try to remember this on all our trips. It's so very true.

Great photo. I hope to see and identify one someday.

Your photograph is stellar and the quote such an apt one for most (if not all) of us who frequent these wildlife memes. So much beauty and discovery along the way, and so easy to miss if the only aim is to "get there"...
