Philosophizing (and Phoebe)
“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
This is my favorite portrait of a Black Phoebe (Sayornis nigricans).
This flycatcher is one of “The Regulars” here in the canyon — a year-round resident and almost impossible not to see or hear every single day.
Familiarity most certainly breeds fondness.
