After looking at a book purporting to teach me how to understand the cries of crows, I went out to the swamp behind the library I work at. I took some pictures of lichens and briefly aimed my camera at a cardinal who was already too far away and was having none of it.
As I wandered back towards the building a crow came by. He made several loud cries. I had no idea what he was saying.
"This is America! If you want me to understand what you're saying learn English!" I cried.
Oh he knew English. I saw it in his eyes. He was just taunting me.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.
I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!
One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
