Families Gathering On A Sunday Afternoon
Sunday afternoon, and family gathers together; usually to share a meal.
Sunday afternoons stretch before us as generations gather together, to share, to visit, to instruct, and to relax.
A timeless tradition of taking a moment out of the flow of time; an unscheduled moment to rest, and catch one’s breath.
Family unites us. We “birds of a feather” come together to celebrate our commonalities, our history, our concern for one another.
So let us celebrate family. Families who share common blood, and also families who share only their common interests and love for one another;
Families who come together out of necessity, and families who choose each other to create new family ties, where none were before.
All you need is love…

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
There’s nothing you can make that can’t be made
No one you can save that can’t be saved
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time
All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

Hi Marion, Was missing hearing from you. Hope all is well and that everyone is safe and warm. My husband is still laughing at that first photo, and am glad you like it 😉 Best wishes, wG
Beautiful post, WG. You got some great shots, especially of the vultures.
Thank you, Robin 😉
Cool photographs! Your first and fifth picture is of the American Black Vultures. I can’t believe you got that shot, that’s great! I have never seen so many together when they were Not eating an animal, that’s cool 🙂
Hi Micheal, Thanks for the kind words 😉 The vultures are gathered around a deer hit earlier in the day by a car. They absolutely didn’t care that I was close by taking photos. Not a single one flew off while I worked, and I have about 5 shots of them. They are beautiful animals, and so important in the ecosystem. I found another deer later in the trip who had already been pretty well cleaned up by vultures. Mostly just the skeleton left. I’m trying to decide whether or not to publish the photo. (if you don’t mind, I may email it to you for another opinion ) It is interesting that these birds don’t generally kill- they just clean up animals already dead from other causes. Did you see the tight close up of just one of the vultures in yesterday’s post? They all had assigned tasks- and took turns eating. The photo I published yesterday was one of their “look outs.” Best wishes, Michael 😉 WG
I couldn’t see the deer for all of them gathered around. I would love to see your picture.
