brown pelican eggs



I don't know if the oil can get directly INTO their nests (except in the case of a hurricane - in which case, they're doomed anyway) but if Mom and Dad Pelican are hanging out in oil all day long, you know they bring it home with them.
It reminds me of the workers at Chernobyl somehow.

I love both of these -- so soft and suggestive. I wish you could publish this as a chapbook --

Love seeing them all on a page, what a beautiful book this is becoming. I can also see your adding your words about the pictures to the pages as an art journal. Is that your plan?

Dianne said...
