Storm Light Swan

Jazzy and I got rained on during our walk and we didn't see anything of interest to snap. In the end I decided to go to Fishers Green and shelter from the rain in the Bittern Hide. It was really cold in there today. A parakeet visited and I failed to capture it in flight. A blue tit popped into a bird box and decided to stay there. At first it was very grey when the rain stopped but suddenly the sun broke through and dark clouds gathered to the south. I photographed a flock of young swans taking to the air in the special storm light. This light is amazing but very fleeting. 

Today's poem is Discipline by George Herbert.

The poet is asking God to deal with his frailties with love rather than with anger and punishment. They're not necessary because Herbert loves God.
