Mom's statue looks like she is associated with the big building (cathedral?) in the bg of the second shot in post one. I love cathedrals!

(I'm also envious of the traveling you get to do!)

You've a good eye, Hooded Claw.  Facing the statue, that cathedral would be to your left and behind you.  It's right across the street in the Central Park.

My next blog series is closer to home.  Last year we did the Taos Loop into the Carson National Forest, which is one of the top fall foliage drives in the country.  I've already blogged about part of that trip, our excursion to Trinity Site where the first atomic device was detonated, but I saved the fall foliage part to coincide with the lead up into this year's season.  That series will begin September 26, after I wrap up the Chile-to-Los Angeles cruise series on the 23rd.

Intellectually, I know there are monkeys in Central America, but it just seems WRONG somehow to have monkeys on the same continent as the USA!   :o

Haven't followed much of the current election season, I take it.

Sorry.  Couldn't resist that setup.

The bird is a snowy egret, whose plumage was long ago popular for lady's hats. The black legs with yellow feet are the cue. Nice environmental shot of a patiently-waiting hunter. And he clearly is in volcanic territory!

Yes, it is, Hooded Claw.  That's why I titled the shot "A no-regret egret on the rocks".
