The Quest for Food

One of our primary needs as living organisms is to find food.  For some it is simpler than for others.

Plants need sunlight and water and the bees and wasps (among others) harvest the pollen.

Ravens hop on a ferry hoping a human will leave part of their lunch.

Cows get fed at the trough; and the smaller ones have to wait.

And some of us get tired of cooking and head for a favourite restaurant. Or are in transit and have to stop somewhere; this was a great somewhere on our recent trip from PEI to Shawnee on Delaware Pennsylvania.

      I chased that Raven around the ferry for most of the short 20 minute crossing. I’m happy to have gotten that one good shot. And yes, the fish tacos WERE delicious.
