To have these magnificent birds so close was quite an opportunity: One I’d like to have again, maybe on a sunny day.
Pick, pick, pick . . .
nice portraits Isabel
Jim R – And again, thanks. And thanks for the locale suggestion!
Barbara – Thank you. They were highly obliging, standing around like that.
Love the symmetry.
Jim – Interesting, isn’t it, the different things we respond to. I’m a bit like the stereotypical art critic who can’t define art but knows it when they see it. I don’t know exactly what it is that catches my attention about a scene, or what features I like in photographs – but I know what I like!
Oh, my! You realize, I hope, that you could have these enlarged, reproduced, tastefully framed, and sold to thousands of home decorators. They are magnificent. And if I were not so far behind in my work, I would rhapsodize.
Laurna – Back to work! And thanks for taking the time to encourage me.

I invite you to help me make a difference by buying my latest book. All my royalties are going to Food Banks Canada to help with the problem of food insecurity, made even worse by this pandemic.

"If you don’t think Cdns can tell right from wrong & honourable from disgusting, & speak up effectively, why the heck let those slugs vote? And if you do, why graciously permit them to cast a ballot on terms the politicians define, but not to weigh in on the issues beforehand?"
Canada, land of freedom to shut up and let politicians talk https://thejohnrobson.com/blog/2021/6/11/canada-land-of-freedom-to-shut-up-and-let-politicians-talk
Yeah, the way the opposition has been stonewalling committees, barring witnesses from appearing, refusing to release documents, filibustering… oh, wait. https://twitter.com/SusanDelacourt/status/1402976028147040256
The government's House Leader, @pablorodriguez, is saying at. news conference right now that Conservatives are making Parliament dysfunctional -- which Liberals for a while have been saying they would regard as an election trigger. Uh oh. #cdnpoli
