My Plan: “I’m going to explore the aesthetic of wabi-sabi, sometimes described as one that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature. I think walking out in nature this past year gave me the joy needed to keep going, so I’ve gathered photos taken since March 2020 for inspiration in composing haigas, sometimes other forms.”     

I spy from afar,

the egret pauses –

she’s no fool

  1. Beautiful egret, who is indeed no fool!

  2. This is a scenario I'm very familiar with... but more often with squirrels, rabbits, or occasionally my parents' new cat. :)

  3. We watched egrets around the pool at our friend's place in Florida. It was a quiet and sort of out of the way spot and I think the birds all felt right at home.....lovely. I adored trying to get great pictures of the birds. Sometimes I could get closer than I hoped. And sometimes I got them in flight which was really beautiful. Always on alert, though, that is true.


Thanks for visiting!
