wet Egret

Dorian blew past us at the Eastern Shore and stayed to sea. Saw a wet skinny fox, but was too late to get a shot. Getting older, getting sadder, wondering how stupid we will let ourselves get... dead stupid I am sure.

Be thankful you are wise enough to feel sad, and to know that the stupid is, well, stupid. And that you’ve stood for what was true and right, which will be your legacy. Meanwhile love the beauty viciously. The wet (and dirty) egret is incredibly beautiful. He needs no further textures or composited figures, he is exquisite art just as he is.

Glad y'all are safe and sound from "Dorian". The Egret appears to be a 'lone survivor' and you have captured him/her well.

I totally understand your sadness, Piet. Who wouldn’t be sad? So much is vanishing. I secretly hope some of my nature photos will help future generations in my family understand that I cared and endeavored to inspire others to care — as with the beauty, mystery and awe I experienced while looking at your photo.

thank you Karen, I wish only that the world could be clear and honest and simple - like a good photo. Animals and the circle of life can show extreme brutality, but for some reason - the animals only seem to take what they need. Our greed on the other hand, has no bounds.
