I have been spending a bunch of time posting on Instagram lately. Even though I spent many years working at the international level (not really traveling though) it never ceases to amaze me how I can connect with folks from all over the country, and the world, on a daily basis.
A photographer in the state of Washington wanted some help in identifying a specific hawk and I responded with my guess and then another photographer responded with his idea. Another person also responded, as have others. When I thought about it, we had two people from Washington state, a person from New Rochelle NY, another one from Rochester NY, an individual from Wyoming, and myself from Massachusetts, all looking at the same photograph.
Just today, I posted a photo of a Barred Owl and one of the likes that I got was from an individual in the Ukraine that goes by the name of owl_bengamin. I am not sure if he has an owl as a pet or if he maybe helps nurse injured owls back to health. Another person was from New Zealand. It is such a small and wonderful world that we live in if we all just gave it a chance. Just my 2 cents for today.
