One photo a day challenge: Day 203. Recently I have been thinking that it seems like I haven’t seen many pollinators around our flowers at our house. It feels like normally this time of year they are everywhere. We plant quite a few flowers. Both perennials and annuals. We also have a large section of our yard that is left wild and is full of wildflowers. Normally there is a constant buzz… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 173. I enjoy walking through the wood with no real intent for my photography. Walking slowly among the trees. Slowly looking and seeing. I tread lightly. Stroll slow and easy. Eyes open. Trying to see. Trying to attune my senses to the forest. I want to become aware of the smallest things. The tiny details. Opening myself up to observe as much as I can. Trying… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 168. Today we spent the day chasing waterfalls. We sought out waterfalls that were close the the road and had easy access. Our dog isn’t as mobile as she used to be. Brynn still loves to get out and explore. So we found ways to get her out doing what she loves. I bought a book detailing how to find a large number of waterfalls in… Read More

Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge It is always fun to get online and keep up with what other people are… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 146. Today I spent most of the day birding at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. I had such a fun time. So many fun bird sightings. I took way too many photographs.

I especially enjoy seeing… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 127. Today I returned to a spot I photographed for this project earlier in the year. I wanted to return today because previously the trees had no leaves. Now it is early spring and the leaves are starting to bud on trees. I really like the more subtle shades of green that are present as a trees leaves are just starting to unfurl. If I went… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 126. I most frequently do my birding from home. But today I wanted to make a concerted efort to go out birding someplace other than at my hosue. I wanted to go out and hopefully see some of the birds I am seeign people reporting. I decided to visit one of our beautiful local parks, Sperr Memorial Park. This is not only a beautiful park, but… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 118. I know I have probably written this sentence many times on this blog, but I am going to write it again. Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. I especially love the time of year where everything growing wild is just starting to come back to life. Leaves are emerging and flowers are just getting ready to blossom. It is a magical… Read More
