Personal Time

For the last 6 years, these last few weeks leading up to the 4th of July weekend have been crazy for me! But not this year. Instead of trying to get ready for the Rockport Center for the Arts Art Festival, I'm doing other things...

Don't get me wrong. I'm still busy...but not busy preparing art and unpacking display tents. And you know what? I'm feeling so good NOT doing that!

I am still finishing up my final portfolio for the Wildlife In Focus contest. I'm taking my time and making sure I have everything just right. I haven't the slightest idea of what the judges will think, but I really feel good about some of the images. We'll see...

This Little Blue Heron appears to know how to relax and take care of himself/herself. Preening is important for birds in order to keep their feathers clean and straight. I watched this one preen for over 30 minutes. Afterwards there were a few yawns and this heron flew off to hunt. But it did rest for a while.

Maybe theres a life lesson here...
