I've been meaning to put this up for a couple of days; this is a beautiful heron's nest I pass every day on my way to the barn to see Dancer. It makes me think of so many things; being a parent, teaching your kids to fly for the very first time, and just having faith that everything is going to turn out okay. Lots of heavy stuff for just driving by a nest! Herons are one of my very favorite birds-I love watching them fly, with their legs streaming out behind them in flight. I was hoping to take a picture of them every day, to document their progress, but alas, I have not had the discipline to do this; we've only been able to simply enjoy passing by every day, seeing the babies and their parents huddled together.
