The Heron or Egret is symbolic in many cultures.
In Egypt the Heron is honored as the creator of light. A double headed Heron in Egypt is symbolic of prosperity.
As a Chinese symbol the Heron represents strength, purity, patience and long life.
In Africa, the Heron was thought to communicate with the Gods.
Most Native American tribes took note of the heron’s inquisitiveness, curiosity and determination. As such this set the heron as a symbol of wisdom in that this creature seemed to have good judgment skills.
As a water creature the heron is also a symbol of going with the flow, and working with the elements of Mother nature rather than struggling against her.
The heron is a beautiful creature, exhibiting grace, and noble stature. It’s no wonder the Native Indians and ancients honored the heron throughout the centuries.
I think this animal suits Robin so very well.
Don't forget to visit our birthday girl and make her day!
