In the Kingdom,
Filling the void within
Is an art form.
It takes skill
To move with controlled
To catch the object
Of your desire
In silence you wait
Waiting for the precise
Instant to attack.
Just a moment
to repel hunger
For a time…
American Alligator and Great Egret–two predators each with their own survival agenda; both born with the innate skill to ward off starvation by stalking and seizing their prey.
These hunters are so elegant. Each in its own way. I like the blue ‘gator in the green water.
Keep your hands in the boat!
Oh, thank you, Carsten. I took the gator photo while standing on a boardwalk. Interestingly enough, the photo was taken in RAW and just turned out blue and green, even after correcting white balance.
The words brought the tension of the hunt, the photos show the adaptations which give the two predators a chance at success.
Looks like there was trees/shrubs reflecting in the water around the ‘gator. The blueness is what happened to me with the Canada Geese I photographed when their black wingtips looked blue. Was it overcast for that photo, MJ?
Beautiful colouring on this photograph. Lovely
Stopping by to say HELLO! – and let you know that I
wonder often how you are!
I’m sure you’ve been as busy as I — so NOW
I’m going to send you Happy Holiday Greetings!
Thank you, Deborah. I am fine. Happy holidays to you, too.
