Friday Photography - On The Bay ...

everything looks normal, the tides come and go, the birds peck around, the setting sunlight illuminates the valley. But for us these are uncharted waters, and for many it will hold much pain. My wish is that the pain recedes in time and a new chart is drawn, one less harmful to all of life.

Cheers everyone, stay strong and connected.

Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end the faster it goes.

@Socialprogressive Great House Finch pix SP! Beautiful! Are they eating the seeds? Keep your eyes out for the rare orange or even almost yellow variants. Scarce, but possible.

Great mudflat pix Janis! How I love tidal mudflats. I have spent many hundreds of hours surveying them. They have shorebirds, as in sandpipers. Amongst my favorite birds. Many are tremendous long distance migrants. One, a Godwit, was satellite tracked to fly 10 days straight from the tundra to about New Zealand for the winter, roughly 7000 miles non-stop. Some sandpipers occur there where you are I dream of seeing. Every combination of leg and bill length to exploit every niche of water depth, many with spectacular breeding plumages, but those are often dull in winter.

@dystopian

I’m glad you enjoyed the photos of an environment that you love so much. Your knowledge and curiosity stimulates my interest in exploring more closely, which I appreciate.

Stay well, and continue to enjoy life as much as you do.

Just a quick one whilst no one is looking...

This is a male Yellow-throated Warbler in the birdbath yesterday. I presume the territorial one that nests across the road and uses yard daily.

Can't remember if I posted this before. This was last fall at Garner St. Pk., in Texas. It was a one-handed while driving through the windshield shot, but I thought it interesting. Weird having what seems a trailer of rescue equipment, with a notice painted on it saying to F off. Save Yourself. Almost as if, yeah we got the stuff to save you, but you can't have any. Kinda almost like America today.

Play it safe out there folks. Be well!

In the meantime taking lots of walks. It’s spring here and beautiful.

What a combination. The art of photography with the spoken words of Leonard Cohen!

"Show me the place".
Indeed.
Show me.

The phrase has such power. Scientific and emotional combined. There is a bit in "show me" that is science: (show me the proof of it), and there is also the bit that says: (share with me your experience)...

Lovely.

@peachcreek

of art and musical poetry, especially of the Leonard Cohen variety - and your allusion to the melting of art and science. I hope together they shape something better.
