Meaning: The Heron is known to be a lucky charm for successful fishing. He is a symbol of grace, elegance, patience and good luck. At the same time, Heron's are known to be loner and in some tribes are associated with a weakness for flattery and vanity. The Frog is a very important Symbol. Since he is living in two worlds, water and land, the Frog is revered for his adaptability, knowledge and power to traverse worlds and inhabit both, the natural and the supernatural.
