looking through three yards distant to the bend of the creek – a surprise; the
heron I had not seen since spring, even three hundred feet away – still majestic

bag flapping?
no -
resting heron

Note: the heron must have been a tad curious too, because later in the day
he came into my yard (I saw through my window) – maybe looking for me?

note:
finding a full time job with benefits in this economy isn’t easy. Even though the pay
may not be great, as the saying goes – a foot is in the door starting next month.

the reptile pets
