Lagoon Inlet
Lagoon Inlet

The shapes in the lagoon fascinate me.  The water creeps through the marshy grass into extraordinary puddles and fingers of water.  Sometimes the heron sits on the near edge; other times he’s across the main body of water on the other shore.  His stark whiteness stands out.  I’m surprised he’s not vulnerable to predators; he certainly doesn’t blend in.

Stand out or blend in?  Sometimes one is more politic than the other.  Often we don’t get to choose.
