This piece represents the strong spirit of the great blue heron. This majestic bird is one of my spirit animals and i admire it greatly. It is strong willed, self-reliant, has agressive self-determination and also represents character strength. The heron aslo posseses an ingredible keen and sense of patience; it will wait for the right moment to attack it`s prey, waiting patiently till it gets it`s chance. Observing the heron, it is of utmost grace and honour, standing proud and on one leg to represent its balance of all things. It`s always an incredible moment for me when i get to observe one of them in the wild, two even better, but to witness a whole heronry (colony of breeding herons) is phenomenal, such a rare but beautiful occurence.
