Jaunts in Nature

Jaunts in nature refresh and educate, take my camera whenever I’m out and about, even while walking the dogs.  Just never know when eyescapes will totally blow you away!

Guess this is what is referred to as “ecotherapy“,  “take in the sea air” or as pioneering nurse Florence Nightingale advocated strongly that patients be exposed to fresh air and sunlight. No argument here, totally agree. To see the freedom of flight and light dancing on the waves, ah yes, a gift indeed!

Ever see a metallic bee before? In this case it’s found to be the Green Orchid Bee!

Ever see a bee smile? I do believe I have 🙂  Spent hours with these little ones, amongst them and only a few inches away at times. Thankful I wasn’t a threat and to take in their beauty and such a JOY to share!!

And I think, what happens when the flower blooms and the bee doesn’t come?

A study last year found 35 pesticides and fungicides, some at lethal doses, in the pollen collected from bees that were used to pollinate food crops in five U.S. states. Bees that ate pollen contaminated with fungicides were found to be three times as likely to be infected by a parasite linked to colony collapse. Reading this I weep.  At least found that bee keeping and knowledge sharing is in abundance, now to wipe out private apathy. A walk in nature does that for me!

Yup think it’s time to gather my gear and prep for a new adventure all the while connecting with my sorrow.

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
