A Gull for Gunta….

I still think it’s odd to have Sea Gulls flying about…in the middle of the mountain-west…but I guess they enjoy living in proximity to The Great Salt Lake….  They also seem to enjoy hanging-out at the pond in Liberty Park.  My friend Gunta has an affinity for Sea Gulls and frequently shares photographs of them in her blog “Movin’ On.”  If you haven’t yet walked the sandy beaches of Gunta’s Oregon coastline, I heartily recommend a visit…beautiful sea-scapes, sea-lions, seals, and many other Pacific Northwest wonders…including Sea Gulls….

I don’t know how this particular specimen compares, or is related to the gulls that Gunta finds out on her pacific coast, but I think he’s kind of cute…I wonder if she’ll recognize him….

Revisiting the walk with giants…and geese….

Two circuits of the moon, give or take, and the giants are awake…the guardians of that city’s central park are no longer stuck in their winter slumber, but are alert and watching, steadfast sentinels on guard…no longer skeletons bare with trunks and arms akimbo, they are clothed in spring-time finery and seem to perform a ballet in the blue and noon-time sky….

You can visit the earlier post and see the winter-bare trees by clicking on the words “To Walk with Giants and Geese.”

He/she almost has a quizzical look….  “Have I seen you before?”

Mine!  Mine!
