Out Live Love on a Cloudy Day . . .

 “Out live love on a cloudy day…” Drove to the wetlands and the climate changed. Ahh yes those familiar clouds. Isn’t that so like life, overcast hearts, and what did this day teach me? OMGosh a grey sky can background an almost Audubon preface, especially when hungry Osprey’s decide to visit!

Ironically met some of my most favorite people that day, my sister Rachel and two other great photographers! Well we adjusted our cameras and shot away, nature did not let us down! Two lifer’s for me! Osprey catching prey and a Brown Thrasher!

all one has to do is adjust their vision

Never underestimate the “reason for the seasons” in your life.  The pain and sorrow one may cause you is an opportunity to open up the seed of faith in your heart! Let it transform you, let Grace overwhelm you!!


Reflections of what was, fact is, if you still yourself you will see just what all that buzzing is about! I cracked up viewing the two dragonflies in the below picture, never saw them until the upload

Did capture this Cattle Egret dancing on the water and these dragonflies held their ground!

So did this little Pied Billed Grebe! This cloudy day was delivering epic reflections.

Tri Color Heron wading nearby got lucky too

And then I hear the “HONK”, oh my day would not have been complete without the sighting of my favorite bird; Great Blue Heron. Out stretched wings he proclaims his territory with his unmistakable call. He lands with focus and his stance is royal. Listening it’s as if our Prehistoric ancestors are right beside us.

And wouldn’t you know it, just when dusk was approaching, the sun came out. Yup sweet reflections while out living love on this cloudy day~

    Never would have guessed it was a cloudy day.  From my view it all but looked like a perfect sunny day!  Your wetland “buddies” sure did give you a good showing!  Especially admired the gracefulness of the Cattle Egret; those white plumage’s just looked so inviting…a desire to want to stroke them.  

  2. They are ALL incredible shots, but my favorite has to be the magestic great blue…inspiring photography!
