Good Planets are hard to find, December 9, 2006

To those of you who sent photos not on this weekend's edition, they will be on NEXT weekend's post. Although Marc in Australia sent several that I could not open at all. My computer is old, and needs more memory. But here are this weekend's photos for Good Planets:

Yankee Transplant sent this image of snow on buds, from last week's snow:




Glenda from The Peace Train sent this honeybee:




These two beauties are from Tree. First, an elegant tree-trunk:



And this lovely jack-in-the-pulpit:




Commandante Agi sent this beauty of Iguacu Falls taken in 2004.




More South Africa from Rowan of Circle of the Year:




Susannah from Wandering Weeta was kind enough to resend the two from last week which I could not open.

First, Deer Lake Reflections:




And just because it's cold, and I think she might have a dark sense of humor, this summer shot of Kettle River:



Two more from my own Bhutan trip:




A forest of Prayer Flags at 13,000 feet in Bhutan:



From Robin and Roger at Dharma Bums comes this beauty of their neighborhood. Not bad for an afternoon stroll, eh?





From Pam over at Tortise Trail, this image of Jasper National Park. She writes "We were driving alongside a string of small lakes when we came across this scene. The stillness of the water and the clarity of the reflection took our collective breath away. I wished I'd had a very wide angle lens to capture the breadth of the scene."




Whisker sent this juvenile Cooper Hawk:



Grandmère Mimi sent these wonderful baby mockingbirds, hiding in jasmine:

Such beautiful photographs. We really do live on a good planet, and these photos really show its grandeur.

We just can't waist another minute with these useless or underutilized spaces which you call wilderness. At least, pave them over and make a parking lot!
