Seeing nature remotely


Sometimes one cannot get out into nature oneself and the only way to appreciate it is remotely through a book, TV, or possibly even a blog.

There was an occasion fifty years ago today when I found an aspect of nature inaccessible, so I watched it remotely via TV — and even took a selfie of the occasion.

This occasion merited the only selfie I have ever taken.

    Best selfie I have ever seen. Over the moon, as it were.
    I was on an archaeological dig at the mouth of the Skagit River then. No electricity or news but I still laid in the ground and looked moonward in wonder and appreciation of that event on June 20, 1969.
    I wish we would leave the moon alone, unlittered and uncontaminated henceforth.

    ..interesting share..50 years..quite the keepsake you have shared.

    “That`s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” Neil Armstrong July 20, 1969.

    I am just reading official transcript differs from what Armstrong insists he did say..he said “…a man…” , transcript reads man..

    Rare sighting of Homo sapiens in unusual habitat. Note atypical plumage and behaviors.
