Attitude

Success in this life requires being in the right place at the right time and having a little luck.  But we must also give credit for powers of observation.



"Hmmm, wonder what this is all about?"
It does not hurt to have the killer hairdo thing going on.  Throws everyone off their pace and makes them watch you instead of something else.  Give them that intimidating as hell look.


Do not be afraid to jump on it when the opportunity is clear.  Let the others keep their dignity and grace.  You know what rewards dignity and grace give.


And, thus, to the victors go the spoils!!


(Yes, it was bait thrown aside by a fisherman, but food is food even if not as fresh as one is used to.  And as Hilary has corrected me, this is a reddish heron.)

Somebody was taking care of business. I wonder if I could find a wig like that.

Your remarks about luck and observation works for the egret (Reddish egret, is it?) as well as the photographer. Fine captures.

Tabor, your photos of the reddish egret are fabulous! I saw one of these for the first time last month, when we vacationed in Florida; but it didn't put on this kind of show. (By the way, Hilary sent me over.) :)
