Bird & Birders, Sunset, Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, San Antonio NM, February 4, 2010
There's the infamous goose
This picture will give you an idea of the scene at the roosting ponds along the highway through the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge a few miles south of San Antonio NM. This picture was taken about a minute after the Snow Goose series I pulled the picture from for the posts on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Birders gather here to watch the Sandhill Cranes and Snow Geese coming to roost at sunset and again in the morning to watch them wake up and take off for their feeding grounds at sunrise.

I remember walking in art galleries, through the nineteenth century: the obsession they had then with harems. Dozens of paintings of harems, fat women lolling on divans,turbans on their heads, or velvet caps, being fanned with peacock tails, a eunich in the background standing guard. Studies of sedentary flesh, painted by men who'd never been there. These pictures were supposed to be erotic, and I thought they were, at the time; but I see now what they were really about. They were paintings about suspended animation; about waiting, about objects not in use. They were paintings about boredom.
