Migration. Our friends have come back to their winter home. Our lake. Welcome back there is enough lake for all of us. ....... “Let him who has not a single speck of migration to blot his family escutcheon cast the first stone...if you didn't migrate then your father did, and if your father didn't need to move from place to place, then it was only because your grandfather before him had no choice but to go, put his old life behind him in search of the bread that his own land denied him...” ― José Saramago, The Notebook #migration#americanwhitepelican #flight#hope#freedom#getoutside#bekind#texas#lake#outside#pelicans#lakesomerville

Tatanka in the mist. This morning was remarkably foggy on the way to work.So when I saw this small herd of Buffalo emerging out of the misty fog like a ghost. I pulled off to the side of the road,crossed a bar ditch and hiked up the steep incline. If not for the constant hum of the nearby highway in the background, I was definitely somewhere else if only for a moment. Ghost.

Case study: become one with the hummingbirds. Day 7: the hummingbirds have seemed to accepted me into their tribe. They no longer fear me...instead I have begun to make sense of their language. Even delved into their societal behaviors. A Hierarchy rule of law exists here where sugar is life. They don’t seem to be bothered by the trivialities of life. They seem only to be focused on sugar. An obsession that has turned into almost a mediation all based around their need for the almighty sugar. Their wings seem to beat like drums and between the beats you can hear the whale/dolphin like noises they emit and if you listen close enough you can hear.....Sugar.........Sugar.........Sugar. Sorry.....I have to go now they seem to be questioning my attention to this phone...later.... #hummingbird #ecology#naturalist#dontbesoserious #lifeisshort#getoutside#wildlifebiology
Song of the hummingbird. Slow motion captured them talking and it sounded strangely like humpback whales. This is way better then whatever is on tv. Trust me. #hummingbird #naturalist#outdoorsman#lifeisbetteroutside #lookingoutmybackdoor#brenham
