… and what eyes they are! The photo above is of a double crested Cormorant on takeoff with the explosion of water flying all around him … and then there are those remarkable turquoise eyes which adds to the beauty of this voracious consumer of small fish.
Below is a shot of a Coopers Hawk that I got this evening whilst on the deck with One. It is a delight to have them back and time for me to get the bird feeder out to attract more food for them; I do enjoy the songbirds that a feeder provides and they in turn provide food for my favorite raptors … we feed the whole food chain here 🙂
Lots of work on photos today and the rest of the week will be the same.It is going slower than I had hoped, but I’m trying to have almost all new photos in the show next week and that takes a lot of time … worth every minute of it though.
It appears that my email servers have made peace with Google Gmail and I am no longer blocked from replying or sending to Gmail 🙂
Have a beautiful day today … stay focused on your dreams and make them happen … we get one chance at this thing we call life so we might as well make it the best experience that we can. Smile, keep breathing and journey on.
And for a while there was this conflict within me, the still sweet face of the night and the stern face of duty—the vision and the world.
I would abandon myself to the still, sweet face; it invites and calms me, like the great quiet that follows the passion storms of love.
But to-morrow the wheels will grind again, and the monster will sit in the high place, lashing the back of the world.
I look again at the still sweet face of the night, as if to say adieu; yet I linger and look again and again, loath to go, as a man parting at evening from the woman he loves.
