Approaching Winter

from 99.00

Another young bison meanders across the range, possibly in search of better grass, or just more agreeable company.  I wonder if she appreciates the beauty of the changing foliage at the tree line?  There is some evidence to suggest that birds, mammals, and even some insects are able to appreciate natural beauty.  Evolutionary arguments for aesthetic appreciation in animals and birds focus first on identifying foods that look good (because they are good energy sources) and then on how food aesthetics are transferred to those governing selection of mates.  I'm not sure I buy it.  I just think that all creatures embody the environments they experience, particularly when young.  A natural affinity for earthly beauty exists in all of us -- we feel it and cannot truly know ourselves beyond that frame of reference.
