I never knew a place like this existed – the rookery – a place so magical and beautiful I don’t necessarily have to go “off-planet” to be totally thrilled; although instead of in the swamp where I found it I placed it in the hypnotizing sand ripples at my local beach.

This is the place where blue herons build their nests in the spring; they fly in from all directions carrying branches for delivery to the nesting site. When I first saw this place it was late fall – it was abandoned – just the bones left, waiting for new life in the spring, like most of us. I’ve been spellbound ever since.
