| TODAY'S PHOTO
The Turtle and The Coot, in Wakodahatchee, quite different
from "The Tortoise and the Hare."
I was thinking it might be time for a flower photo
again, this week's issues of Picture to Ponder having
included photos of animals, birds and, what I'll term,
the abstractions in Nature.
In my desire to please, I attempt to use photos that
I think you want to see. Unless I ask and you respond,
how do I know what it is you want? I sometimes think
it's flowers because it's those photos which seem
to generate the most email responses.
As I was "pondering" this, I received an
email response to yesteray's photo from our friend
Mary Gray. I decided to ask her input in advance and
sent her a few photos. Her response was enthusiastic
for them all. "The alstromeria is gorgeous...
and... However, I'd suggest the turtle and the coot.
It's just so companionable. A warm, fuzzy feeling
to take into the weekend."
So, I give you Mary's pick and invite you to notice
this weekend what you do to please people, assuming
that this is something you also do, consciously or
unconsciously. AND, if you ask people's opinion, or
advice, do you honor it?
I almost went on to choose an altogether different
photo from the ones I sent to Mary and then concluded,
"If I'm going to ask, then pay attention to the

READER COMMENTS ON THE LAST ISSUE - Issue
Mary Gray's response, as mentioned above:
saw the images you mentioned except I never quite
pinned down Little Red Riding Hood. I also saw a long-necked
bird with a fish, but the main thing I saw when I
first looked at the photo this morning was a gaping
mouth (with that "big fish" being sucked
into it.) Coming back to it now, though, it's more
like a thumb and forefinger forming a circle."
"Missed commenting on yesterday's heron, but
Bob Tatem and I must have done research on some of
the same sites. <g> I, too, read about this
heron "fishing" by using bait (usually insects
but even bread or bits of trash). Also, the little
green heron, like many birds, goes by other names.
Perhaps the most appropriate, given your question
about its color, is the green-backed heron, but my
favorite is the swamp squaggin."
