Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – It’s All About Nature.
When we got to the lake, the sunset peaked through broken clouds with the wind blowing hard enough to almost knock me off my feet a few times. When you have strong winds in a mountain environment, it’s a lot like gusty winds in a city with tall buildings. The wind gets channeled into certain areas and greatly magnifies the force. So you can be walking in an area that has light winds and you walk out from around cover and wham, the wind hits you with a big invisible surprise. With the wind blowing and the sun saying hello and goodbye through the clouds, it was time to take a few moments and explore one of the crown jewels of Grand Teton.
To hear only the sounds of nature and feel the movement of the water under you, makes you part of our natural world. It cleanses the soul and fills your spirit with a renewed sense of purpose. A purpose larger than anything you could possibly do at work or home while doing your daily tasks.
For my last square top, of course it had to be a bird. This is a wood stork and is found in the southeastern part of the United States. This guy sat on top of this hollowed out tree that has several woodpecker nesting…
The lorikeets will become your BFFs when you purchase the nectar and enter the large aviary.
Tweety was smart and Frank trained him. When he wanted to be on Frank or get petted, Frank would tell him to go poop on command and he would.
Reddish Egret perched on top of a tree in Wesley Chapel, Florida. I watched him fly in and land while sitting on the back patio of my best friend’s home. Click the panel below to visit Becky’s site and the April Squares Photo Challenge:
This multitasking osprey was staring me down while eating his fresh catch and taking a celebratory dump. I watched this bird land on this old cypress tree snag with the fish and claw at it until it stopped wiggling around. Photographed near Little Talbot…
I could hear them long before I could see them.
Please find my contribution for this weeks #SundayStills photography challenge, ‘For the Birds‘ hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt. As an avid birder, I could have gone on for days and flooded this blog with bird photos. I decided I had other things needing my attention…
