Maybe because Groundhog Day 2019 has only recently passed, I've been a little obsessed with the topic of seeing/not seeing one's own shadow and am learning to confront mine as Carl Jung suggests everyone should do.
I once stopped to admire how a Ring-billed gull was examining his own shadow (as evidenced in the photo atop this entry that I took when I was at Long Beach in bygone years).
I also have admired how a squirrel and a Khaki Campbell are "confronted" (or not) theirs, which you can see in the following pictures.
(And, yes, I do know Jung referred to the physical shadow caused by the sun as a metaphor.)
Birds seeing their shadows is something I discussed in this past Saturday's post here on Blogger, where I featured the next picture of house sparrows in my garden.
This bird type is featured in my book series, Words In Our Beak, which, as I've been saying make a great gift for love birds who love birds and with Valentine's Day being a week from today, you might want to consider getting these books for the one (or ones) you love.
