I didn’t go inside the Legion of Honor on my recent San Francisco trip, although I’d love to explore this art museum someday. This time I had to be content with the view from outside, which is pretty impressive all by itself.

Today was a very good day for spotting birds — plus one dragonfly. This morning I also realized that very often when I’m hearing the sounds of birds I’m not truly listening.
