... it would appear that our hapless Blue Heron is a little confused about whether he is flying or not ... so it would seem as he hangs suspended for a moment as he is entering into flight. I took this shot yesterday down at the ponds after a bit of work in the cold on the Lambada. Actually the heron is beginning his second wing stroke and the incredible force from his first wing beat has blown all manner of debris into the air around him when he took off from his perch on the concrete abutment in one of the ponds.

It was a very busy day today and I worked on the photography website all day and just uploaded it a few minutes ago. The URL is and I would appreciate it if you would visit it and give me some feedback on it. It is still in the early stages of development and many refinements will be made. Chief among the changes will be a description of each image either when you scroll over it or select it; catalog numbers for each image and online ordering. To simplify the orders and so you know immediately what your cost will be, the listed prices on the website are the delivered prices to you regardless of where you live in the USA. If you live in Arizona where we must charge a sales tax we will absorb that expense as well. To begin with I will only have a dozen images in each category and may add a large repository that can be browsed as well. In any event I will be changing the images every couple of months. Too there will be some formatting changes, but so far I like the overall feel of the website and would appreciate your comments as well.

Some rest and then the day will continue with copious quantities of espresso from home roasted beans.

Cheers and believe me I have a smile on my face after getting the site uploaded.


And in this journey over a thousand hills and valleys called life, he is wisest who

is patient where the way is hard, has faith when he does not understand, and carries

into the dark places the light of a cheerful heart.
