Somebody recently made a favourite of this photo from myflicker photostream. Following a two-day storm on the Canaveral Coast of Florida in 1999, the wind
and rain suddenly abated and I got up at dawn to watch the sun rise
over the sea.
Sitting on the deserted but still
rain-sodden sand, I was rewarded by the company of this lone heron
engaged on an early morning fishing expedition: a beautiful encounter
that I will never forget...
