“Of life’s two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer’s hand.” ~Khalil Gibran

Great Blue Heron, St Vrain River, Colorado

Nice catch!

The labor of this Great Blue Heron paid off well with a nice-sized lunch, a Rainbow Trout that had been skimming along the edge of the ice. You just never know what opportunity might arise, even when the conditions are not optimal, as it was for me getting this photo on a very cold and dreary day. So let’s keep fishing! Whatever you are working on today, hang in there. Your reward could be close at hand if you don’t give up!
