This from John Scalzi:
"Your Monday Photo Shoot: Get a shot of one of our fine feathered friends (preferably undomesticated). "
Well, I went on a ride this morning hoping to perhaps see some wild turkeys, or an eagle, down by the Missouri River. I did see a dove, but not close enough to photograph. And I saw a couple of racoons high in a tree, either fighting or making love (with animals, who can tell?). But the only birds I got near enough to take pictures of from horseback were some funny-looking ducks down the road from my house... and they're domesticated.
However, I happened to remember my February trip to South Padre Island, so that saved the day. Seagulls on the sand, and pelicans flying overhead.
