Sundays Online: Holga Say It Ain't So!

I sadly report rumors of the Demise of Holga:

End of an era and a fun way to experiment with medium format photography!
We do still have the Diana.  And I think competition from Lomo Products and Support 
for its users was part of Holga's downfall.

Rocky Mountain Chorale.........

This is how I spent my weekend.  Music helps to heal, and my spirits were definitely helped by having to perform.

The 11th Hour: Veteran's Day

At the 11th Hour on the 11th Day of the 11th Month, the Horror of  World War I came to an end.  In the U.S., after WWII we renamed Armistice Day as Veteran's Day.

I am growing a field of Flanders Poppies to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day and the end of WWI.  A forgotten war in a forgotten time.  But if we learned more about it, we might be able to avoid the next round.

Raptor Education Foundation: How Could I Forget This Guy!

OOOOPS!  One more bird to post.  And how could I forget one of my favorites,  The Turkey Buzzard:

Above with the Curator, Anne, this guy was flight capable.  he ended up at the rescue because he refused to leave humans behind and live a wild life (he had been raised as a rescue).
Below, feasting on a quail.

Our more experienced Comrades wanted to see the last bite, Ideally a foot being swallowed:

Good to the last Bite!
