Beak points downriver…
Little Egret pleased to wait
until lunch is served
Sweet haiku, Sarah. I hope he got his lunch. 🙂

Thank you, Sylvia 🙂 The water there is very clean, clear, and well-stocked with rich pickings, so I’m he was rewarded well for his wait.
It’s lovely to see one of your little egrets Sarah!
He’s beautiful, Andrea, isn’t he? I watched him for ages and he didn’t seem to mind at all, but then I wasn’t going to steal his lunch!
I’m guessing fish is on the menu. 🙂 Thanks for starting my week off with a smile and some quality writing.
They’re not averse to frogs (or tadpoles when they’re in season), but mostly I’ve seen what I think are migratory sea trout in this stretch of water, as the sea isn’t far off. …Always glad to start your week off with a smile 🙂
AW…… What a patient little fellah x
He is very patient …much more patient than Mister when it comes to meal times! xxxx
Ha ha xxxxxxx
Gorgeous! I miss my great blue heron that used to fish in the little culvert by my bus stop in the mornings; he moved on to larger (and fresher) bodies of water. There’s just something about these kind of birds that inspires one to follow their example… Patience, I mean; not ducking my head in the water in search of fish. 🙂

There are blue herons along this stretch of water, too. Like you, I do love their patience, and just looking at them makes me feel calm 🙂
Like someone is going to serve him… 😉
The River God will bring him something tasty, I’m sure 😉
Ah what a sweet bird, deserving a good haiku 🙂
He’s a lovely bird, isn’t he? So very white and calm. Impossible not to write a haiku about him 🙂
BTW I am not getting notifications from your blog anymore, and cannot figure out how to subscribe again. WordPress is a pain…
Click on “Reader” on the upper left of your site. You’ll then see a menu with “Followed sites” as one of the options. To the right of that, click on “Manage”. Scroll down until you find my blog in the list. To the right of that you’ll see “Following” and under that a “settings” symbol. Click on that, then you’ll get a subscribe menu 🙂 The vagaries of WP, indeed. They keep changing things without warning.
Your blog is not listed there Sarah. And many others too. I follow 2700 blogs, and there are barely 500.
Perhaps there’s a glitch with WordPress on your site, Inese, and it has caused you to unwittingly unfollow 2500 blogs. Have you visited my blog when you’re signed into WP and seen if the icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen says “following” or “follow”. If it says the latter, then all you need to do is click on it to rectify things. If it says the former, then there’s obviously a glitch and you need to contact the WP technical support people, who I’ve always found most helpful. Maybe you’re following more people than their system can handle! Who knows? I know that I couldn’t cope with following that number, or blogging would end up as a full-time job and I would have to give up novel-writing 😉
It says I am following. It is all good. The list in the “Blogs I follow” is shorter than it should be, that’s the problem. I cannot get the email notifications for all the blogs I like.
I follow all the bloggers who follow me – it is an online unwritten rule and good practice. Of course I check out first if the content is not offensive or vulgar.
