zhashagi [Blue Heron] - anishinaabemowin

 

"Blue Herons are my favourite animal to encounter. They have a powerful, yet calming presence. Always observing and only quick to action when there is a need. A creature that always seems to enjoy its beautiful surroundings. These are qualities that I strive for in my life."
