The Heron In Winter ...


"Be inspired by your journeys traveled,
and the ones yet to come."

Peering Atop The Apple Tree ...




“Don’t sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me,
Anyone else but me, anyone else but me, no, no, no!
Don’t sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me …”

            ~ “Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree 
                  (With Anyone Else But Me)
    ~  Sam H. Stept, composer 
      ~ Lew Brown & Charles Tobias, writers
         ~ A popular song made famous by Glenn Miller & by The Andrews Sisters during World War II. Its lyrics are the words of two young lovers who pledge their fidelity while one of them is away serving in the war. It remained in “Your Hit Parade’s” first place from October 1942 through January 1943, the longest period for a war song to hold first place.


“Don’t sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me” ~ perhaps that’s what this Great White Egret – also known as a Great White Heron – is thinking as it almost seems to be waving while peering from atop an apple tree while on the hunt on an August evening at Cedar Creek Parkway,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Perched At Wehr's Dam ...


This Great Blue Heron may well be contemplating how fast
the summer flew by while perched at the historic Wehr's Dam
on a late September afternoon. The dam, built in 1904, is next 
to Wehr's Covered Bridge, which dates back to 1841, at
Covered Bridge Park, Orefield, Pennsylvania.
