Abstracts in Nature

I don’t normally appreciate abstracts in modern art as I tend to prefer ‘reality.’ But nature is both real AND abstract when seen up close, as with this raspberry. I was chasing a butterfly in the picture below – I mean with my zoom… Continue Reading “Abstracts in Nature”

Walking in a Riverbed at Mt. Rainier – Following the Nisqually River

The promised sun and highest temperatures of the year finally arrived in the Pacific Northwest after an interminably cold and rainy spring. You may ask why we’d wish to go to a snow-covered Mt. Rainier on such a warm and lovely day to which… Continue Reading “Walking in a Riverbed at Mt. Rainier – Following the Nisqually River”

Unexpected Snow Day and Icy Berries

Just when it looked like spring had arrived, we woke to snow on the ground – enough to ice my favorite berries. Sharing with Cee’s Flower of the Day. ~ Susanne

Eagle-Eyed in Port Townsend

Favorite Nature Shots from My Own Backyard – 2022

Berries in Ice and Season’s Greetings!

I took these photos from my front porch this morning, and other than tending to the hummingbirds, I’m staying inside till it’s safe to go out. And with that I’m signing… Continue Reading “Berries in Ice and Season’s Greetings!”

And now for the Eagles – a Walk at Lincoln Park

Yesterday I shared with you the hummingbirds in my backyard; today I’ll share the eagles – okay, the eagle – that I saw last week before the weather went south. It was one of those beautiful blue-sky days that we sometimes get in Seattle… Continue Reading “And now for the Eagles – a Walk at Lincoln Park”

Hummingbirds in the Snow

My Little Nuthatch

I love all the birds that call my garden home including this little charmer – the red breasted nuthatch. I often hear his energetic ‘ank-ank-ank,’ before I see him in the branches of the Douglas Fir tree above, looking for insects, or walking down… Continue Reading “My Little Nuthatch”

Garden Flowers Up Close and Personal with the Bees

As summer wanes the flowers in my garden are looking rather spent. Still, they are full of color and attracting bees. I sat and watched them recently as they diligently worked the remaining blossoms Sharing with Sunday Stills, Macro. ~ Susanne
