Love how nature shows up when you least expect it. The suddenly’s which strike you to the core. You kinda sense the mystery, the tension in the air as a portal opens up. It’s why I have invested time, study and purchasing technology which will allow me to steal heaven. Ok maybe that is too dramatic of a statement however it’s close to how I feel.
Such mystery in nature, everywhere you look one can find a habitat where your soul soars
Admiring the view spied an Anhinga and fired a shot. Peering down, quickly checking if my exposure was right I get distracted, whacking sound . . . yup a suddenly had happened and a fish was being pounded into submission.
Firing away caught earthquakes of the most amazing sushi dinner being consumed!!
Visiting Nature you will be consumed with beauty, comedy and tragedy. The tragedy is reflected in the disrespect some have for our environment.
In the time of Noah, Jehovah found an upright man to preserve nature. Today we too have an opportunity. The nature of man is confused, and the earth quakes. Migration is in the air and the juveniles are feeding.
And we walk, we observe, we capture beauty and pray for balance.
In the midst of the field I see chaff and wheat growing together and breathe in beauty
A meadowlark appears on a post nearby and sings his lovely tune
“A friend is one to whom one may pour out the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that gentle hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.” ― George Eliot
And you ask me why I make time to visit nature?
My prayer is I never forget what she teaches. I end with a busy little red bellied woodpecker doing what he was created to do.
