Hooded Mergansers

I am extremely fond of hooded mergs, and I saw a pair as I walked around the Little Lakes today.

It seems impossible to me that the world can still contain such beauty.

I'm glad you got out for a walk. Those incongruities are startling and deeply painful. It is a beautiful bird.

Thinking of and praying with you.

That is a stunning bird. I've never seen one.

Beauty can sometimes be so piercing.
