Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. Albert Einstein
I know we Canadians are considered a hearty lot by many. This being especially true given our winter's cold and occasional frigid temperatures.
Late last Fall I noticed the beautiful flight of the Great Blue Heron with increasing frequency. The daily fly-passes to and fro wherever watering hole it favoured.
Then I noticed it was now mid January and although I don't see the Heron nearly as often, I still do. I wondered where it was coming/going from... until yesterday. I found this crazy bird hunkered in the shallows of a pond that defies freezing temperatures.
I can't help but wonder if it will even survive this frigid winter.
I have a sweet tooth and I'm a diabetic.Love being outdoors, but my fingers get cold easily... $%^#%Appreciate honest, sincere, agenda-less type people.A hug is great to give and receive.I have a few posts about cold... frigid... bone chilling weather.
Looking across the Lake Ontario towards New York State. The ice pack extends quite a ways from shore. I took this shot as far out on the pack ice that I felt comfortable walking and slip/sliding on.
Within Wellington Bay, you can see how the wind whips across the ice. Midway in the photo and just left of centre are a number trumpeter and tundra swans. They appear motionless and I fear many will/have succumb/ed to the harsh weather.
Stay warm my friends.
