  1. Ah, you nailed the grapevine/bluebell composition. My attempt looked ridiculous.

    Just noticed that the Blue-gray Gnatcatchers appeared to have anchored their nest on either side to lichen patches already growing on the tree. Makes me wonder if this is requisite for nest site selection among all pairs. Probably not, but certainly aids in the disappearance of this one.

    If you find the cave in which Mr. Hildebrand apparently saw nothing but his own shadow, I might suggest that a renaming in accordance with Thoreau’s policy is long overdue: “If the fairest features of the landscape are to be named after men, let them be the noblest and worthiest men alone.”

    Thank you for the reprieve, sir.

  2. Thanks for the comments, my friend.

    “…in which Mr. Hildebrand apparently saw nothing but his own shadow”
    Perfect description, Steve! And, I completely agree with your suggestion.
