As you see from this blog of botanical fish illustrations, I adore fish of all stripes and hues. So just when I think dealing with the Carnage on the Gulf Coast due to the marine and shoreline assault from the BP Oil disaster of April 20, 2010 is getting a little easier, I run across this heart-tugger:
Sea Creatures Flee Oil Spill, Gather Near Shore
By JAY REEVES, JOHN FLESHER and TAMARA LUSH
Dolphins and sharks are showing up in surprisingly shallow just off the Florida coast. Mullets, crabs, rays and small fish congregate by the thousands off an Alabama pier. Birds covered in oil are crawling deep into marshes, never to be seen again. #
They're gathering near shore as if we can help them while the US Congress pretends to fuss out BP's CEO Tony Hayward who says he's 'distraught.'
I have to stop blogging now. There's much praying to do.
