I had fun doing this still life. The apple's apparently on the outs with his citrus buddies.

I may have left the wrong impression with my last post about coyotes. I'm wary because I've seen their capabilities, but that doesn't diminish my love for these amazing animals. Maybe part of that admiration is precisely because they are so maligned--such underdogs (pardon the pun), surviving in spite of monumental efforts to destroy them. They are wild animals, an integral part of the natural world, simply doing what instinct and survival demand of them. I think it would be a great loss if they could no longer be glimpsed loping through the sage, or if their night songs were forever silenced.

i love the atmospheric light, just beautiful...

(coyotes and the previous post..... i'm not sure what there could be misunderstood so i assume it is a sociocultural idiosyncrasy)

Thank you, Rahina. I thought someone might interpret my last post as meaning I was anti-coyote, so thought I would try to clarify.
