Saw this guy the other day out on the lake and the crappy iphone camera had no way of seeing that far, so I did a little sketch. There is one small rock that juts above the water way out in the lake about a mile up from Promontory Point, and on that day there was this big bird sitting on it sunning. Bigger than a seagull, but too far out to know what it was. Anyway, it was really amazing to watch this bird sit there for minutes facing the low morning sun with its wings raised, gathering heat during the chilly morning. Silly, but it just felt very cosmically significant that this solitary bird consulted the sun in such an intent way, that it knew that this was what it needed to do to get ready for the day. I might start trying it on cold mornings.
