August 20

Coming into Newark on the first
leg of my trip to Panama, watching
our shadow converge on our
touch-down point, I am momentarily
overwhelmed by the fragility of
this flight thing...by the sheer
number of finely balanced forces
it takes to keep us airborne, by
the unlikely combination of
ingenuity and perseverance that
justifies our earth-bound species
risking our lives on a daily basis
taking to the air...and by how often
our faith in technology is rewarded
and how vanishing small, in the
overall scheme of things, is the
number of tragic disappointments.

Mostly we get where we are going,
mostly in good time, mostly in one
piece (and mostly with our luggage).

It is just, watching the shadow of
the plane race across the runway
approach, over fields and houses,
factories and parking lots, still
moving inhumanly fast, there was
a moment there when my faith
in the laws of physics and human
endeavor wavered, and I wondered
what I was doing in this aluminum
can with wings fleeing the captive
flame inside those jet engines.

God's Dog
I am up early tomorrow and headed for the airport for the first leg of my flights to Panama…I will get to Panama City by 7:30PM tomorrow, to the hotel by 8:30, and then we have a 5AM pickup for the flight to Bocas del Toro. My posting schedule will be off for the next 9 days…but I will attempt to post at least to my Facebook and Google+ Pic for todays. This post is for tomorrow, 8/20.

God’s Dog is what the native Americans of Southern Arizona called the Coyote, and in this pose it is easy to see why. Such a beautiful animal. Again, I don’t post zoo shots that are obviously zoo…but who can resist the Coyote in its natural setting?

Eating the last of my belated birthday
peach pie...getting my hair cut...doing
a trial packing for Panama (in-country
flights have 30 pound limits),,,figuring
out a dry bag for the cameras on the
boat crossings...checking the Northern
Blazing Star bloom on the Kennebunk
Plains...taking care of car stuff for the
Focus before Kelia takes it to college...
getting a Micro-SD card for the new
international emergency phone...
making tuna pasta salad for supper...
charging camera batteries...backing
up the Tucson photos...registering the
C-Max and getting chickadee Maine
plates...getting the poem done...making
the most of this day between trips, but
the best part was, of course, the pie!

Glass-winged Butterflies
These might just be my favorite butterflies in the whole world...and they are even more special in that I only see them when visiting the highlands of Central America...in this case the mountains just below the continental divide overlooking Bocas del Toro,  Panama. This is both of the species possible in these mountains. We are at Tranquilo Bay Lodge for a week of birding and photography in this amazing corner of the tropics.

Nest Building Verdin
Though I am in Panama for a short night's sleep before a 5am pick-up for our flight to Bocas Del Toro and Tranquilo Bay Lodge, I will take a moment to post this shot from the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum in Tucson. There are,  of course,  a lot of wild Desert birds who call the grounds of the ASDM home. This Verdin, building a nest,  is one of them.

I must be in the playing it safe mode
these days. I got a new battery for the
Focus my daughter is taking to college
(just to be safe), bought a lithium ion
jump start pack for the C-Max in case
it ever falls prey to the dead battery
syndrome again, and, just a few moments
ago, bought a year of medical travel
insurance...required for Cuba...and
probably a good idea for upcoming to
Panama, South Africa, Peru, Honduras.

Insurance is always kind of like betting
against yourself and hoping you lose.

I will consider it a win if the money is
totally wasted: peace of mind is priceless.

Woody the Woodpecker
Yet another shot from the Ash Canyon Bed and Breakfast south of Sierra Vista, Arizona. The Acorn Woodpecker is the archetypal house breaker, hammering on any solid surface, destroyer of aluminum siding and cedar shingles indiscriminately…made famous by the Disney cartoons of Woody the Woodpecker. They are the most common woodpecker in the foothills of Arizona’s Sky Islands.
