This has always been one of my favorites.  I used it for my avatar for a while.  If you look close, you can see the jewels on her beak.  🙂

Have a great weekend and if you’re a Mom, Happy Mother’s Day!

Here’s a link to a photo of my wonderful Mom on facebook.

About John Muir

American naturalist John Muir is remembered as a passionate champion of the natural wonder of Yosemite; he was instrumental in turning the land into a national park. Born in Scotland in 1838, he immigrated with his family to Wisconsin in 1849. He dropped out of college to walk 1,000 miles from Indiana to Florida. After falling in love with Yosemite, he took a job herding sheep nearby. He developed the theory that the valley was created by glaciers, which is now accepted as fact. He died in 1914.

      Thanks, Ryan. I’ve had a crazy week myself, so I understand. Sometimes I just have to walk away from the magnetic forces of my computer. It can suck me in for hours if I don’t walk away. 😀
