Just Thinking About Good Planets

I don't know if you've been following the ever more beautiful photographs that are being contributed to Good Planets Saturday. If you have, you know how wondrous the planet is. If you haven't, then you need to take a look at this month's offerings at Somewhere in NJ. Once you've been deliciously overwhelmed by these sights, click over to the Flickr gallery and take a trip through the entire archive of photos that our fellow bloggers, friends, and family have submitted since August. Pam of Tortoise Trail started and maintains this fantastic Flickr gallery.

In these days of global climate change, wars, and political insanity, it is good to take a break and remember this fragile beautiful planet we are whirling through space on. Take a look around. As Stephen Forbert said, Good Planets Are Hard To Find. If you've photographed the beauty of our planet, pleasae send the pic to lc-hardy at comcast dot net. It's a weekly celebration.

These two photos of a Redtail Hawk were taken seconds apart on Wednesday as it took off from a tree. It reminded me of what Robert Kennedy, Jr. wrote on Huffington Post the other day about Redtails in Jackson Hole, Wy. When we change the climate on the planet we change how all the animals must live. Maybe we need to send them a memo: Grow feathers sooner.
