Wow, I mean, like, this shot really came out pretty cool. Not perfect, but pretty cool. And I post it on a day when I don't want to go outside because of the stink that some people say may be coming from the oil rig accident hundreds of miles away in the Gulf of Mexico. I hope everyone is taking the big hint right now, and reconsidering letting them drill for oil even closer to Florida's coast.
I hate to imagine the disaster if something like this were to happen even closer to us. The news video online was just showing the bodies of some dead migratory birds. Meanwhile, the smiling reporter says that even though the air stinks, the air quality alarms are not going off, and there is nothing to worry about. What a crock of poo. When you keep thinking to yourself, "What's that smell?", then it's time to be worried about what kind of toxins are in the air to make it smell like that!
But hey, what do I know? I will tell you this... if your breathing is the LEAST bit compromised already, I would stay the heck indoors, with all the windows closed, and away from this smell until it blows away. Let's all just hope it dissipates quickly! In fact, let's all keep our fingers crossed that they get that damaged and leaking oil well under control soon!
Take care everyone. I hope you like today's photo as much as I do. These beautiful birds never cease to impress me with their beauty and their grace.
