I watch him as he ponders my presence,
only a temporary distraction from
the lizard now locked in step 
blinding into the tree bark
disposing of intricate patterns.
Soon the runner disappears 
into some unknown world,
no known direction, dissolving 
into the brink, yet native lands.

“Here, then, is the genesis of two of the most important historical premises of Western science.
The first is that there is a law of nature, an order of things and events awaiting our discovery,
and that this order can be formulated in thought, that is, in words or in some type of notation.
The second is that the law of nature is universal . . .”

This ornate tree lizard appears to have come out of his winter home to catch some morning sun in Sabino Canyon. The lizard is darker than normal, allowing for more absorption of the sun.

The hole and pipe are in a large rock and was originally a source of drinking water for visitors to the dam area of Sabino Canyon.

“I get a greater joy from finding things in Nature,

already composed, than I do from my finest personal

arrangements. After all, selection is another way of

arranging: to move the camera an eighth of an inch is

quite as subtle as moving likewise a pepper.”
