… another successful day for this Osprey as he flies off to eat the chub he has just extracted from the water at Bubbling Ponds around 5PM tonight. I took a break from the photo selection process to do a little work on Mariah, thence to the ponds for a walk and to shoot whatever I found … very specific intentions. It was beautiful and also windy and there wasn’t a lot of wildlife hanging out there, then as I was leaving, I looked up and this guy was making his appearance. He over flew the ponds and took kind of an easy swing over me before diving for the water a couple of ponds down from me and coming up with this fine chubby chub. He flew to a tree to consume his dinner and perhaps come back for another one after I left … it was a rather small fish.
More work on photos and stones tomorrow, working on some beautiful gold in white quartz from Colorado currently and … also finishing up a Power Point presentation I am doing for Keep Sedona Beautiful on September 12th . The title is “Meandering through Northern Arizona … and as seen through the lens, eye and mind of Ted Grussing.” About 120 of my favorite photos of Sedona and other parts of Northern Arizona … scenic, aerial, wildlife and the abstract. Plan on making the meeting if you are in town and I believe the meeting and presentation is open to all, whether or not a member of KSB. https://keepsedonabeautiful.org/

Have a beautiful day today … it is the only one you have and only you get to choose how you live it.
…I yield myself to the thousand enchantments of sky and field and wood,
and play again like a child on the soft green of the earth.
