Sunday Scenes April 3, 2016: Poppies

Through the dancing poppies stole A breeze most softly lulling to my soul.  -John Keats

This scene was captured last year. The poppy reserve has not fared well, this season, due to rains that began too late to nurture the poppies into blooming.

sparrow

The little sparrow in the photo above, caught its dinner!

I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn. -Henry David Thoreau

americanrosefinch

I enjoyed watching the American Rosefinch, above, having breakfast. It is not a Purple Finch, although it might seem to be at first glance.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. -Chinese Proverb

Caldron Cooking

frogs

Song of the Witches: “Double, double toil and trouble”
By William Shakespeare

(from Macbeth)
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

Red Coat, Seals, Commorants

My love of photography is a passion I have had since I was a child. I am not a portrait photographer, but love to capture people during moments of quietude, that illuminate their passions.

red coat seals

I was looking out the window of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, in Monterey CA, last November, and saw this woman photographing the scene in front of her. I just had to capture her photographing the black commorants and the seals on the rocks.
