The egrets were gathered on the pilings at water's edge near sunset. Unfortunately, I had to shoot into the light to capture them, but couldn't resist! Like statues, they were poised to spear their prey. The light must have revealed transparency in the waters below because time and time again they showed success.

So many times we equate action with success, but in doing so, we may overlook the importance of inactivity and stillness to prepare, think, and reflect. The incubation (and even hibernation) of ideas may be the real catalyst of success. 5th Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL

  1. Great shot - in this overprogrammed world we forget to leave time for stillness.
