Meditation Divine

Poet's Corner


Eyelids resting on peaceful closed eyes,
Holding the calm, inside of his mind
Muscles lay soft on the bones of his face,
At one with his world, tensions died

This vision of him, brings me down to the earth
A reminder that balance is mine
To conquer, control, this gift of the taking
As Buddha, in meditation Divine

Why Evolution Is True

Stephen Barnard in Idaho continues his quest for the perfect photo of the rufous hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus). He explains:

I realize that I’m being repetitive, but I’m looking for a definitive Rufous BIF — one that could be used in a field guide or a monograph.  This is as close as I’ve come.

I’m not sure what a BIF is, but that looks pretty good to me.

The light was poor, but the drop of nectar hanging from the beak is of interest.


And two more photos from Steve Pinker’s trip to Tasmania. First, a sugar glider (Petaurus breviceps):
