Echo - Fauna

Our task must be to free ourselves...
by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature and its beauty.
Albert Einstein

Memorial Day 2010 we toured Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery as dusk approached. Even with relatively heavy traffic at 7pm in the evening, the Park deer were grazing on the damp grass. I'm always amazed at the fauna of urban areas, but being so close to the Mississippi River I shouldn't be surprised. I had seen their presence, on previous visits, as they had  dined on flowers left at my parents grave. This was the first time I had seen them in action. Peaceful and perfect.

Galveston Coast

Riders enjoy the Galveston Coast line in November 2009, I hope the folks in Galveston are spared more destruction of the coast line.

VERY cool images! All the i-phone apps have me coveting badly, and I too hope and pray for the fauna along our coastlines.
