Juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron - Photograph

(Click on image to enlarge)

I took this photograph at the Library River Walk in Westport, CT recently.

I like the way the sunlight reflects off of the water and onto the tree behind this Juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron. This turned out to be one of those perfect shots for me.

Stone Bridge Reflection - Photograph

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

I took this photograph near Mill Hollow Park in Fairfield, CT this past week. This lush green scene belies the fact that we had a sweltering humid heat wave going on. (The hot weather continues, but the humidity moderated a little.)

I started this sequence of four photograph posts with a tranquil scene, and am ending with one as well. In between, were birds of prey, which were fitting for my current view of our world.

This was a quote that I came up with for a recent art piece that I did:

I Crow Over All

Because Nature is neither Good nor Evil.

Nature is merely reproduction and survival of the fittest.

The Great Blue Heron had ruffled his feathers and had a spiky porcupine look in the first photograph. I liked how the bird's colors blended with the green, yellow, and purple flower background in the second photo.

"The Black Bird" - ATC

I made an Artist Trading Card (ATC) / Playing Card with an underlying dark theme, corresponding to my current world view.

"Do the Hillary! - Cold Chai Seizure" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

I made a cartoon showing the new dance craze that is going around.

It's okay to make a joke out of this, because 100% of the United States Main Stream Media is in agreement that there is nothing wrong with Hillary Clinton's health, and they are reporting that there is no truth to social media claims that Hillary Clinton had a seizure on June 10, 2016 when she stopped by Uprising Muffin Shop in Washington DC.

However, I have yet to see any US Main Stream Media news organization do analysis on that video. As can be seen at the 6 second mark in the CBS News reporter Hannah Chanpong June 10, 2016 video, Hillary Clinton's open eyes do not track together. Her right eye is turned completely to the left, but her left eye is looking straight ahead.

And if you're wondering why I don't make cartoons about Donald Trump: I don't need to because 100% of the US Main Stream Media is doing that already, so there is no need for me to do it also.

-----

Everybody: Do the Hillary!

Secretly known to journos as the Cold Chai Seizure.

"I love the cold Chai. I love to boogie." (Sung to the tune of I Love The Nightlife by Alicia Bridges)

Hannah Chanpong - CBS
Lisa Lerer - Associated Press "Are you okay?"
Monica Alba - NBC

"We are the Hillary journos. We have no integrity. We're vying to be her Press Secretary!"

My piece is a "cartoon" in the same vein as Charlie Hebdo cartoons.
