great blue heron even before I actually did. I don't know how I knew. I just sensed that it was going to be there. I began looking for this big bird as soon as I could see the lake through the trees. And I was a little disappointed that I didn't see it right away.
but then as soon as I walked down to the fishing platform I looked to my right and there it was on a little island where most of the birds like to visit. I never thought for a second that I wouldn't see it somewhere. I just wasn't sure where it was that I would find it.
It's something I wonder about every time it happens. Maybe in this particular instance it is because I'm getting better at knowing what to expect from some aspects of my local areas of nature. I do know I'm very far from an expert on nature though. I'm just an explorer and mini adventurer. But I have learned so much over the past several years.
What do you think? Premonition or coincidence? I'm not sure of the answer to this last question either. It's just fun to wonder sometimes.
