Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Common Darter


I had one of these fellows visiting the garden. Could get close to take some nice shots πŸ™‚


Broad-bodied Libellula


Found this beauty today at the Childrens farm. Have been quite busy lately, so that’s why i’m blogging a bit less. All part of the ever changing flow of life πŸ™‚

Pretty Woman


Pretty woman, walking down the street
Pretty woman, the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman
I don’t believe you, you’re not the truth
No one could look as good as you

14: Nature’s Sonnet


Life of a Tree

As a tree admires her beauty by looking into her own reflection
Water flows gently beneath and carries along her mirror image
Birds singing from the canopy come down to see the spectacle
A moment in time connects the tree to her own past lifetime
Once she stood firmly and proud on the banks of the forest creek
She was a home and shelter to many animals who befriended her
Her roots went all the way down deep below the water level
The crown on her head was majestic full of the greenest leaves
Years went by as she grew and grew with many seasons passing
She saw humans dramatically change the landscape around her
But the forest was left untouched and remained a peaceful sanctuary
With her birth ground safe she started giving in to gravity
Letting go of her connection to both the air and the ground below
Her the faithful task was to become a bridge between life and death
