Balance


Peg is a daily visitor to my doorstep. I love to watch him adapt to the challenges his missing leg creates. He rarely puts the stump down for balance, choosing instead to adjust the angle of his tail to compensate. He is fast and brave, daring to get much closer to humans that his companions. He is patient, rattling each available nut to get the best one first. He finds a hiding place, taps the prize beneath the soil/leaves/gravel and returns for the next-best nut. He stops only long enough to get a good grip on more treasures and off he goes again. 

"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving."
Albert Einstein

  1. Love Peg and the quote. I see birds on the shoreline who've only got one leg sometimes. They hop about with agility. I've often wondered what causes them to lose legs.

    1. Me too! There is a gorgeous Great Blue Heron nesting at our local lake, and with my bins a couple weekends ago I saw that she had a whole lot of fishing line dangling from her bill and around her neck. I felt terrible for her. I wonder if the shore birds get line wrapped around their legs and lose them from cut off circulation?
