Watching something, watching something, is really interesting.

We are passive spectators of an experience that isn’t ours. So instead of watching the sunrise for ourselves, we watch someone or thing watch it for us. This creates our own internal dialogue of thoughts, an introspection of what that person or creature must be thinking.

In the case of this small water bird, her patience and timelessness to watch the beginning of the day unfold is a powerful, quiet moment.

As I have said before, the awe of nature is not just a human point of view.
