Subtle and sublime start to the day

Isn't it great the way the sun gradually rises to start the day? It doesn't hammer us over the head, suddenly glaring at us in full force. Rather it slowly creaps up over the horizon, giving us ample time to acclimate to the start of day. I'm growing more appreciative of this rhythm of life. Nature's slow, steady beat is in dramatic contrast to our new electronic pace of life, which is 24/7, go, go, go.

This morning when I took my camera down to the pond I was surprised to find a Great Blue Heron practically right beside me on the shore.

I had to be still with the camera, which was difficult while giving about half a pint of blood to the mosquitoes during the process.
