“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” | Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
On our Sunday drive I spotted a Gray Heron. He was sitting all alone on a small pond probably looking for a snack. My son pulled the car onto the side of the road so I could get a closer look. I had to take the photos through a chain link fence, but a few came out nicely. He's absolutely gorgeous. It almost looks as though he may have a small injury on his wing. What do you think?
Do you see the pink spot on his wing? I hope it's not a serious injury.
