San Solomon Cienega -- Balmorhea
Okay, so Sergei Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" doesn't quite work, but you get the idea. Besides, my dog "Honey" plays a mean wolf even if I couldn't get as stellar a performance from anyone else. Other stars in the play are the famous endangered Comanche Springs Pupfish and a couple of starcrossed lovers who happened to get in the way and made a better photograph than Lupe and Bailey [cropped out], who had been trying to lick them like an ice cream cone while I was getting the camera out.
By the way, the "Little Bird on a Branch of a Big Tree" is above and out-of-sight watching the whole photo-shoot going down (the tubes) at San Solomon Cienega today. The Cienega at Balmorhea State Park is one of our natural treasures here in Balmorhea, the Desert Oasis; although, we had to reconstruct it after it was destroyed when the pool was built by the CCC boys.
