I'm Phasing Out This Blog

I'm in the process of phasing out this blog.

My new personal blog is Jim Hughes ( All of the photo feeds that you see here are going there already, and in addition I'm writing posts there as well as at Difficult Seasons.

Jim Hughes is becoming my new home site on the web, so I hope you'll click on the link, go over there, and subscribe either by email or RSS. You'll find links to follow me on Facebook or Twitter if you like, along with a link to my photo gallery.

Thanks for reading.

Pretty sure these birds have a game of hide and seek going on!

White Ibis in a Galveston Bay Salt Marsh

These guys really like to hang out close to grass as they hunt for crabs.  This was shot at low tide, so you can see some of the roots of the marsh grass.

When things are drying up, you just keep moving forward. Photo and Comments

You can't really tell from this photo, but the banks on this pond are about 15 feet high.  Yet there's only a few inches of water left.

That's not bothering this Egret however.  They kind of like shallow water, and he just keeps moving forward, looking for the next meal God will supply.

A nice visual reminder.

Why is it that signs hold up better than the buildings they're on? (photo)

This building is close by, and looks like it used to be a store of some type.  I took the photo because I like the Coca-Cola sign standing out from the overhanging trees.   Bet there are some stories that go with this place!
