Such a beautiful morning today, sunshine and some lingering fog with the sun’s rays coming through. This heron, Y and I encountered in the park around the corner from our home, while cycling to the shops. We stood there for a few minutes watching each other.

It’s a crappy photo, shot from my bicycle, but it shows what I enjoy about cycling our daughter to school in the morning (at least when it’s not raining): on most mornings I encounter a heron, or swans, or as today both together, somewhere along the path.
