A Close Encounter of the Wildlife Kind

Espirational: A 10 Minute Vacation for the Soul

This morning as I was out on my first walk of the day I saw large white wings disappear into the leaves of the upper branches of a tree.  Knowing it was most likely a Great Egret I continued on the path slowly and quietly, stopping every few steps.  It didn’t take long to see the majestic white bird in the tree.  I stopped and admired for awhile then continued carefully, trying to see if I could get closer.  I did not have my camera.  If I’d had the camera I would have a photo or two, but because I didn’t I had an experience that will become part of who I am.

Before I left I thanked the bird for the gift of it’s presence as I always do with wildlife encounters and walked away, still slowly and quietly.  Thank you God!
