Sammamish River - Wildfowl Galore

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 19 February 2017 in Animal & Insect.

So many varieties of Bird and Waterfowl exist in this area, it is amazing. Just walking along the beautiful trail, even in a short stretch, lays out a nice picture of the Ducks, Geese, Herons, And land Birds that exist along this trail.. And if that were not enough, the beauty of the plants, trees, grasses and shrubs is wonderful.
I hope you like this little series.

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " 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."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::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
