Sacrificial Lamb

   There is no such thing as a free lunch.  Nor are there free state or island birds.  Any state bird anyone ever gets, no matter how free it feels, is costly to someone, somehow.  One way in which Farallon birds are earned is through the sacrifice of another.  A sacrificial lamb lays down his or her list for the benefit of others.  I'd say that it's altruism but the lamb generally has no choice and, given a choice, would choose otherwise.  Fate is in control of one's lambdom.

   Speaking of sacrifices, here is the final photograph of Uppy the Upland Sanpiper, who departed SEFI sometime on the 24th or early on the 25th.  Here we have a Meta-Portrait:  a portrait of a portraiter portraiting a portraitee.  If someone had taken my portrait while I was taking this portrait of a portrait...I don't think I can wrap my head around what that would have meant.

Here is the current fall crew enjoying a fine evening on SEFI:

Dear pyre: please attract a Eurasian Dotterel.

  1. The rolex replica have now stopped working. The hands have gone floppy and just spin round when you move your wrists. I would like a full refund for both replica watches. These hublot replica watches were a gift from my wife for my birthday. I am very disappointed with the quality and would have expected these top class tag heuer replica to last years not a couple of months. Please can you let me know. I would prefer a full refund as I am not happy with quality of the replica watches and I am concerned that the replacements will be of the same quality. Sending the replica watches back is a lot of work for me as I travel all round the world with my job. The little finger on the rolex replica I purchased from you is sticking at number 2, therefore it stops please let me know if you are going to replace or repair. It is not even six months since I bought this replica watches uk and have been emailing you regarding the fastener.
