Palemale (and a Stinker or two) in National Geographic Magazine, December 2008.

Lola flying over Central Park encouraging the last of all the red leaves to fledge from their trees. She knows that each red leaf will be carried by the Wind and taken into the Earth...

to become the tail of a brand new baby hawk come spring.

I wish I has some small bit of Lola's wisdom for she can see it all.

Their wisdom may be second only to the trees.

Thanks for all the letters about the photos in National Geographic Magazine (December 2008). Please note that the copies of the magazine which are sent to subscribers is quite different than those on the newsstands. The subscription issue contains four pages of photographs but the newsstand version only has one page.
