It initially starts out like most Treks, hearing the sounds of nature, feeling the breeze and noting the reflected sunlight and then it happens, they are the one’s who become curious! They fly in sometimes so close I can barely contain them in my lens!
Amazing displays and if I didn’t have my camera to catch these encounters might just think it was a mirage. Like the above boat tailed Grackle, a female displaying her beauty, such details in her feathers and her eyes so poignantly fixed, do believe she was attempting to communicate.
Almost missed this Limpkin. Quietly it was resting in the reeds barely moving. Gentle brown eyes, who would guess this was the character who screeches its vocal chords out when it wants to mate. Today his itch was scratched and silent he was, handsomely displaying his feathered wing.
Always nature leaves me in awe. It doesn’t matter how many times I see the same species the moment is always strikingly refreshing. Maybe this can be said about any relationship, if you don’t take “it” for granted then the circle of life energizes, cleanses. replenishes hope.
Nature doesn’t abuse, she doesn’t degrade, humiliate or manipulate nor try to control you, she doesn’t, its not in her nature, maybe this is why they can fly
It was approaching sunset when this tern came diving twirling and parting the atmosphere with a determined effort, however he made hunting for fish look effortless and balancing like breathing. Their presence truly is amazing grace.
As night approached so did the Black Crowned Night Heron, with sheer delight captured this juvenile. And to think, never even knew these birds existed a few years ago.
Didn’t notice alot of things until time was spent watching and capturing amazing nature on film. Just take a look at the Cormorant below!! 🙂 Comically refreshing!
