I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

        Sometimes the great bones of my life feel so heavy,
        and all the tricks my body knows—
        the opposable thumbs, the kneecaps,
        and the mind clicking and clicking—    
       don't seem enough to carry me through this world
       and I think: how I would like 
       to have wings
-- Mary Oliver

If this gannet had just dipped a little to the left this would be a much better picture. On the other hand, you can actually tell that it is a gannet -- golden head, clear eye -- which is not always the case with my attempts to catch birds in flight.
