Did you know this about The Heron

 

The blue heron is symbolic in many cultures. In Egypt the Heron is honoured as the creator of light. A double headed Heron in Egypt is symbolic of prosperity. In China the Heron is a symbol of strength, purity, and long life. In Africa, the Heron was thought to communicate with the Gods.

Most Native American tribes took note of the heron’s inquisitiveness, curiosity and determination. As such this set the heron as a symbol of wisdom in that this creature seemed to have good judgement skills.

Specifically, the Iroquois tribe held the blue heron as a very good omen, a very lucky sign. They recognised the heron as an expert fisher/hunter. As such, they believed that sighting a heron before a hunt was a sign that the hunt would be a good one.The heron is a beautiful creature, exhibiting grace, and noble stature. It’s no wonder the Native Indians and ancients honoured the heron throughout the centuries.

As a water creature the heron is also a symbol of going with the flow, and working with the elements of Mother nature rather than struggling against her.

    Evening Kate. Mind if I stop by for a coffee? With all that’s gone on in the last few months, I certainly need one  lol
    Starting the long haul of ‘catch up’, and so I splashed by to see how things are with you.
    Herons, such graceful looking birds, and very difficult to photograph. (my new, re-kindled love, photography)
    Hope you have a good week.  xx

    In England the "Bank vole" is now on the endangered list because of this fellow, but still a most attractive murderer.
