The Grebe Family Catches a Break.

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 30 September 2013 in Animal & Insect.

At the risk of returning to this "well" one too many times, I could not resist taking you back here just once more to show the courageous rescue that the Canada Geese performed by escorting the Grebe family out of the foggy danger they had found themselves in.
I love a happy ending, don't you?

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
