Folks, I had a rough weekend. Not the fun kind of rough weekend either. It was emotional and draining, and I spent it utterly alone so that I wouldn't have to fake a smile for anyone. That being said, I chose a picture that best fits my current disposition. The mockingbird is Texas' state bird, and I've wanted to snap a photo of a living one for quite some time; however, since they're as elusive as a goddamned Yeti, I can't ever get my camera out fast enough. So here's a putrid juvenile. Click for a close up.
Oh yeah, and they're called mockingbirds because they imitate sounds of insects and other birds.
