Cosmic Brownie Cat

Yesterday, Cosmo celebrated his 4th birthday. I was looking through some old scans, and found these  images I made of a couple of his destroyed toys. He and I are no strangers to collaboration, as seen here,  here, and here. I believe we are the only working felis catus/homo sapien artistic duo. However, if there are others, I dare say we are the best. Curators and collectors, please inquire.

Bird Watching

Recently, I have taken up bird watching as a minor hobby. I enjoy it for these two, non-exclusive reasons:
1. It heightens my awareness of my immediate surroundings.
2. It gives me an excuse to spend more time in some pretty cool places.
So, here are a few landscape photographs that have some birds in them.

In case you were wondering, the birds in the photographs are (from top to bottom):
Miscellaneous shorebirds
Boat-tailed grackle
Black skimmers
Summer tanager
Miscellaneous egrets
Eastern towhee
Cattle egrets (and deer)

Photographs from the AT

A few weeks ago I went hiking on the Appalachian Trail. The photographs are in North to South chronological order, spanning from Nolichucky Gorge (Erwin, TN) to the Allen Gap (Madison County, NC); a total distance of about 50 miles.
