I'm sorry that I can't get better pictures for the aves catagory. This is a male red-winged blackbird viewing the place from the powerline above my head. The red shoulder patches identify it as male. The female would be plain and brown-striped. Bird shots take a LOT of patience, something I am only renowned for with children!
Why You Have Come Here
If you have arrived here seeking sanctity or blessing, then you will have to provide your own cloak and dagger. I only confess to the daily struggle to treat the world with the respect it has earned in my estimation. We all look to the sky and wonder. I feel the whisper of the ages calling and know not what flutter or ripple calls true. My approach is to touch your life in only the manner in which you prefer. As we all must suffer at some time, then I feel we all deserve, also, the right to laugh. My smile is my weapon, and at times my words also I use to defend.
