PATIENCE WILL BE REWARDED 1 – The diligent observers.
New Zealand Heron photo art
The diligent observer
If we wait for what we do not see
We wait for it with patience
This New Zealand Heron photo inspiration came to me as I walked along the Mahurangi River next to my studio in Warkworth, New Zealand. The day before I had observed the patience of one White Faced Heron waiting for something I wasn’t sure I knew why. The Heron’s patience found its reward. Food, called White Bait (New Zealand word for young hatch-ling fish) swimming upstream. There was a pattern here. I returned the next day with a camera and tripod to photograph the event and to capture the softening of the water. I knew this was possible, having observed that the Heron was extremely still while waiting as the water rushed downstream.
My bonus was the following day when the Heron flew in with its mate. This unique capture was a pleasure. Wildlife at its best.
The lesson I have learned from this is patience and while waiting for good things to come my way, I will attempt to do the right thing according to the circumstances I find myself in. This is very much active participation in exercising my faith in the Divine Law, as written in “The Constitution from Heaven – The Bible”. The manufacturer of natural instincts in these birds reflects the wisdom in all things made. On this day I experienced patience without stress and anxiety. I hope you understand my insight here because it has given me a wave of greater peace and freedom to enjoy and be grateful for what is in front of me.
Like the Heron in this photo, I am learning to trust, with patience, that my feed will come despite not seeing it in advance. The Heron had an inner knowing food was there and was waiting patiently.
This beautiful story should be displayed in home interiors in Auckland, New York, Paris, London, Dubai or Beijing. Wherever good taste and patience is appreciated.
