Graceful

20150302-amazon botanical garden 047Ailsa picked this week’s word, “graceful,” because she says she lacks physical grace. I can relate. The most graceful thing I have ever done is fall off a horse – gracefully tumbling over his neck, landing face first in a pile of composted poop. Like Ailsa, I am drawn to grace in other creatures, maybe hoping I can learn the moves.

This is a Great Egret that I photographed in The Big Cypress National Park in the Everglades. It was fishing, and demonstrated that it isn’t quite as graceful trying to down a fish that is a bit too big.

  1. While I agree that your egret is a graceful creature, you have not quite convinced me your fall was graceul 😉 Perhaps you mean the way you handled it, which I fully believe would be gracefully.

    • I do believe I handled it gracefully – but I also remember very gracefully rolling over the horse’s neck, landing on my forehead, and continuing the graceful roll down my face (breaking my nose). Now, my friend who was watching may not agree. But it is my story and I’m sticking to it! 😀
