Commute Update - Blue Heron

This morning I saw an absolutely stunning sight within 1/4-mile of I-55 on the Trace. I figured I needed to update my recent post. I was still driving around 30 mph due to the traffic entering/exiting in that area when a massive blue heron that looked like the one below glided past my windshield. From beak to toe it must have been 6 feet, as it's head had already passed my car before it's feet got to my right fender.

The beautiful bird helped me center myself a bit for the day. Take a few deep breaths and relax. There is a beautiful world out there if you take time to look around.
