    Good to Know! Thank you. I was blessed yesterday to not only see a giant white egret but to watch it sunning itself on the very top of an oak tree with a golden halo of sunshine glowing from behind it. Moments after that I saw a beautiful robust hawk sunning itself on the peak of a tree branch. There was also amazing Birdsong during my entire hike…I tried to experience the wonders of nature, the sky and the beauty of our planet at least every day.

    • Deidre, I love that! How fun that you got to see a beautiful egret! I also enjoy catching hawks when they are hanging out…or interacting with other beautiful creatures on hikes with nature. I had no idea you were a nature buff! (:
