Creatures Large and Small

How many bees do you see?

Caught in the act!   

One fish, two fish... 

 Look for the lunker lurking below

Surprise at the Nature Center

I was leaving the MK Center when a fawn suddenly popped out of the brush onto the main path. Very energetic (and cute), it bounced down the walkway. 

Then, another fawn appeared. Twins!

Hmmm, shall I go down here? 

The mother and one of the fawns spies the photographer. 

Keeping an eye on this strange person who keeps following.... 

The mother and her fawns. The photographer is still being watched. 

Okay kids, it's time to go... 


One last long look....

A bit of history, part I




 "The Greatest Moments of a Girl's Life" (enlarge the photo for more details) 




A few of the items we saw at the Bishops' House. More to come soon.... 

Clarification -- the items were part of a vintage and antique show, a fundraiser for the Bishops' House. Most of what we saw does not "live" there.

Reflections on light and shadows





Something opens our wings. 
Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. 
Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.

From bare branches to blooms







Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.

The willows have it (mostly)

Willow trees against a "cloud dance" sky 

Some trees haven't acknowledged Spring yet. But the willows have. 

Golden glow in the late afternoon sun. 

 A pear tree, also into Spring 

Willow peeking between dark trees 

And now for something completely different: I finished the shrug!
