A chachalaca trying to land at the bird feeder with wing outstretched looks like it’s waving at the Photographer.
Some guys can run fast, some guys can sing,
I found I could take photographs that people were interested in.

International Sweatpants Day
Located near Harlingen International Airport Hugh Ramsey Nature Park is a hidden gem. It’s amazing that so many animals unique to the Rio Grande Valley can be seen in one location adjacent to a major road. Several bird blinds and feeders are located along the trails providing ample opportunities for viewing and taking pictures. No admission fees or charges for parking, so it makes for an inexpensive afternoon of entertainment, learning and exercise.
It was the first time I ever saw a Javelina (similiar to a wild pig, but originating from North America), and a Green Jay. I was also able to get pictures of the Chachalacas (only found in the Rio Grande Valley.)
You can’t help getting older,
but you don’t have to get old.
~ George Burns (January 20, 1896 – March 9, 1996)

Martin Luther King Jr. Day
I think people are more apt to believe photographs,
especially if it’s something fantastic.
They’re willing to be more gullible.
Sometimes they want fantasy.
~ Cindy Sherman (American – Photographer Born: January 19, 1954)
