PORTRAITS IN MEMORY // in the loss of something there is always something gained, though sometimes we become blind to see. energy shifts and reconfigures; new pathways emerge. within life there is death, and in death there is life. growth occurs when we allow ourselves to see the truth of impermanence.
along with pigeons
it is legal to kill us

“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -
Looks like my hawk/falcon? Left me a gift 😊. Anyone know what type of feathered friend this comes from? I am curious. #birds#hawks#falcon#emilydickenson#mothernature#feathers#hope
Puffin Boss: Attention. Thanks for coming today. We have a quorum. The topic for discussion today is humans. Any ideas on how we can get them back in balance. They eat too much meat, use way too much plastic and burn shit up. And they also paparazzi the heck out of us.
After spending 48 hours in his hide observing pelicans feeding on the mudflats #WPYalumni@bence_mate_photography captured this striking image. ‘They came so close,’ says Bence, ‘I could make out the tiniest details’. Here he framed the face of a female, its orange-tinted skin and the yellow folds of its pouch contrasting with its blue beak.
The spectacular bill of the great white pelican is a useful tool. Feeding in a group, up to 12 birds form a horseshoe, herding fish into shallow water then catching them in their flexible pouches. However, these majestic birds are at risk – the swamps and marshes they depend on are disappearing.
