Season is here . . .

It’s the time when snowbirds congregate and medical professionals serve in their communities. Local shops and restaurants boom with activity and it takes an extra 12 -30 min to get wherever you need to go. YUP consumption is in the air.

Evenings sip some wine and sift through my photos. No time for Treks so might as well organize recent encounters!

DANG vultures are ugly vicariously ripping through flesh. They pause to look at my intentions and within these moments I see their beauty

Never know what you are going to see while walking down a trail. It’s not always the audible, sometimes you feel someone is watching you this is when you get ready with your trigger. Something is about to happen. See a flash in the corner of my eye…a fly by!

It was bigger than a pigeon and had no idea what it was until it surfaced again with a snail in his talons It was a lifer, a Snail Kite! He announced his Victory catch. This federally endangered species frequents freshwater wetlands where its primary food source is the apple snail.

Recalling each step of this adventure joy rises. Yes so need to touch the depths of truth and the hem of heaven while never forgetting the reason for this season. Yup stretch out beyond my comfort zone and capture the miraculous yet again

Life has a way of smacking you up the side of the head. Just when you think “ahhh THIS is the place, THIS is where my roots will grow deep” you’re yanked into reality. There is a divine path within each of us, timing is of the essence and sometimes chords need to be cut.

Your heart aches.

Ever live with a critical spirit? Someone who ends each conversation pointing out your defects? Have friends who do the same? Call you when they have a need not really wanting to spend time with you rather want you to entertain or “do” for them.  One needs to see this and say goodbye. If they truly cared they would call back and say hello. Yup tough to swallow!

Met up with a group of gifted photographers this year. To spend time with such masters was a treat!  Learned a great deal as they shared their favorite spots and tips towards excellence.  Hope to return the favor one day and have them all stay with us.  This for me is what life is all about, sharing and caring!

We visited country roads in the crisp cold snap which hit Florida, only the troopers surfaced to brave the 21 degrees and wow were we rewarded! Again, another lifer; the GHOST, male Northern Harrier soared right pass me!

Nothing the same about nature, every day a different presentation, a new gift, yup every day an opportunity to capture and give thanks for the tension

Remembering always; “What’s in the Way IS the Way” !

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
