By Ted Grussing
… to be honest, would anyone really be surprised to see someone who looks like this come out on stage with an electric guitar? … accompanied by others who have a similar appearance but were wailing away on drums and other instruments and run through amplifiers designed to inflict pain on the ears of those in attendance. It would be tolerable if the audience had ingested sufficient substances so that they were unsure where they were or what was happening … peace to all mankind, save the planet or whatever the cause of the moment is.
The reality is that this Emu I shot this morning was going up and down the fence line along the road giving us great poses and that more than made up for the dearth of birds at the ponds. It was a great morning to get out and shoot though. I like the shot below of a greenhead mallard who was busy bathing or whatever it was he was doing … sheets of water were flying everywhere and in this shot it looks like a watery hand is gripping him; maybe he had attended the concert the night before? Never know about these creatures that we share this tiny planet with.
Another fabulous week coming up and days to be lived and turned into blessings for us and those with whom we interact and spend time with. Life is so beautiful, but we only get to live it a moment at a time … no guarantees for tomorrow.
Cheers … keep breathing!
