Every time I see the miracle of Nature, I can help but feel happy, and humbled by the perfection that surrounds us – Us, imperfect humans … are we? We are part of Nature. Today, I want to celebrate Nature, birds to be exact. I enjoy bird watching (and that is the extent of it; I don’t know many of the names), and I am blessed, living in an area where birds are abundant, even that I am not in the country, but surrounded by wetlands, and the shore – Cliffwood Beach, New Jersey (USA). Birds are beautiful and delicate, sweet and predictable, predatory at times, but also interesting to watch. For the past couple of months I have observed and photographed birds every time I spotted one near my house. I have enjoyed and watch with awe, the many birds that are around the area. I have learned to recognize a few everyday guests, many with their significant-bird. Amanzingly, they do the same things or follow a routine, as we do many times. Now that the trees are covered with leaves, it is hard to spot them, so I am happy that I took a few weeks to watch, as they came back for spring.
All the pictures have been taken from inside my home on purpose – I wanted to feel Nature’s blessing without stepping outside – a way of celebrating the wonders of Nature, knowing that it can trespass walls, if we are willing to be receptive. Call it an experiment. I had fun with it and found a new depth to my surroundings. Here are a few of my favorite shots.
I hope that you enjoyed these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. For those wondering what type of camera I used, it is a Canon PowerShot SX500IS 30x optical zoom. I know nothing about photography, so please forgive any mistakes, as I only admire, point, and shoot. Just for the joy of it 🙂
HAPPY WATERCOLORS FRIDAY!
