The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Lucy surveying her kingdom.
She would really like to be outside,
but then none of the birds would stick around.

Wetland front yard
Since I first noticed this front yard
in Mt Shasta I was perplexed as to
"why is there so much water"?
I finally found out this weekend.
This house and a few others were
built on top of a wetland years ago.
Now, with all the rain this spring
and summer the houses are surrounded
by water. No one seems to have a solution.
Meanwhile I am fascinated by this front yard.
Here's yet another shot.
