Stranger than Nano Fiction

Walking through one edge of the Nature Preserve loud splashes are heard. Rushed down the boardwalk thinking a Gator catch was in operation. Totally amazed to see a flash of feathers and water spray. Closer inspection revealed Common Moorhens displaying their FEET of all things. Never knew such docile birds could become water warriors!

Reminds me of the day I stopped breathing, when Mr George decided to check me out.  So quiet, parting the water with his muscular body he descends masterfully. Yup he is King of his domain knowing quite well whatever he decides to consume is basically his. Yet sometimes his senses are skewed if a human with a projected instrument rises high to capture the moment. Oh he arose to the occasion alright, just so I could capture his smile!

And then there was Harry, well sorta Harry. From the stone age he must have evolved and withstood all the tests of time. He looks at you with an age old kindness and to think once they almost became extinct due to their plumage. Sickening humans with their greed and lust for natures endowment. One must question the fashion trends, cruelty free is the way to live, love and adorn oneself!

About Brenda

"Brenda adores the birds. She is enchanted with their grace, their beauty. It was the birds and being out among them that gave her the peace she so needed and forged a new passion She uses a camera to capture those incredible moments, to savor them and share them with others. For her the camera was freedom. Brenda spent her life healing others, and dealing with incredible pain and despair. The world of birds and nature and photography was what she turned to in order to see the beautiful side of the world" Eric Curtis Cummings

    Those gorgeous birds with the little tale for them, exquisite. Then The big ole goofy prehistoric face of the predator, magnificent. He certainly does appear to be posing and posturing for your lens. Fabulous!
