… our daily bread and that is exactly what most life forms spend a large portion of each day doing … seeking the food to sustain life yet another day. This egret is walking in shallow water looking for fish or whatever to come within sight and pluck them from the water and put them into the energy converter (stomach to those who wonder) and life goes on. I took this shot earlier this year when a friend and I were shooting at the Gilbert Water Park.
Into the weekend for me … up to Flagstaff tomorrow to get into cooler weather, visit some friends and maybe get some good shots of something … animate preferred, but inanimate works too. The one thing I look for is beauty and I usually find it.
There is a question yet to be resolved regarding the origin of the amphitheater in Red Mountain. Steam blast or erosion. Here is a link to part of that discussion: https://azdailysun.com/lifestyles/columnists/ask-a-ranger-red-mountain-amphitheater—explosion-or/article_21e79ae7-efa4-59f8-80c7-c24bfc5f0777.html . Yup that is one of my photos and Bill gives a very informed argument for erosion. Well worth the read!
That’s it … have a beautiful day and weekend and I’ll be back Monday morning … at least that is the plan!
Though changed as are my songs from youth,
A voice within my heart still sings,
Live thou in tenderness and truth,
And love mankind instead of things.
