… I got this shot of a Great Blue Heron heading across the pond towards a new fishing position on the edge of the rushes on the shore ahead of him … there he will stand quietly waiting for fish to swim by him at which time he uses his head like an arrow and spears them or grabs them with his beak if they are small enough. I took the shot at Bubbling ponds and the day was more than warm …
The days I spend hours taking tutorials seem to go fast and leave me with a feeling that I have not done much … there are stones I want to cut, photographs to take and books and articles to write, but I need to learn new skills and hone the old and there is no other way to accomplish the learning other than by doing it. It is a good feeling when you near the end though, and you have acquired the knowledge you sought … learning never ends nor should it.
My friend Doug has a new book he is publishing and you can get a preview here: http://tinyurl.com/TheRidgesSanctuary and his other books are also available there. Doug is a great photographer and a Professor Emeritus in earth sciences.
An excellent article containing testimony before Congress: “A Factual Look at the Relationship Between Climate and Weather; Subcommittee on Environment Committee on Science, Space and Technology, 11 December 2013, Testimony of John R. Christy, University of Alabama in Huntsville”.
Time for a wrap of the day … hope you enjoy the day and those with whom you interact today … and always smile.
If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe,
Stronger than you seem, and
Smarter than you think.
But the important thing is, even if we’re apart … I’ll always be with you.
