Culinary – A Haiku

To cook is to love

For food is the fuel to live

And the art of life.

Today I caught these beautiful birds in the park while shooting photos. A Robin, Blue Jay, Red-Bellied Woodpecker, and a Mourning Dove.

These photos were taken in Houston this week as a Red Tail Hawk swooped in for an easy dove meal. However, out of nowhere, he was under attack by a Mockingbird. It was quite a show! I hope you enjoy the photo set. Albert

Yes, I am still cooking all the time. I have just not posted many recipes or photos lately due to time constraints. Here are a few things that I have really enjoyed making.

I will leave tonight with this parting Sunset I took at Brazos Bend State Park. I call it Nuclear Sunset because of the vibrant red coloration reflecting off the clouds. 2015 Albert Moyer, Jr.
