|Black-throated Gray Warbler|
Making that first step onto new soil can be so invigorating for the soul.
What lies ahead? What remains behind?
Will this be the last time I see this place? Or will I visit again?
Warblers dance among the branches. Flycatchers dart around them.
And when one sits and ponders the greater picture, it all seems to connect somehow. So now I make the time to really see. Take the time to walk. Shake the bad energy. And wake the artist from within.
There is only today. So I must make it count.
Photos today are from Mittry Lake near Yuma, Arizona
great flycatcher catch!ReplyDelete
you are so rightReplyDelete
balance is what we seek
in a creative life
and we have to pay the bills
both neccessary for life
Bad energy....walk away from that
and pay attention to your intuition
I love warbler's visits
you have to pay attention to see them
as you do all good things and blessings in life
I think there are fewer of them passing through here..sad
....even the crows have not returned from west nile virus
I'll be in Wisconsin next week
....yeah, oh the sunsets in Ellison Bay...Ill think of you

Great post, Chris! And your photos of the warbler and flycatcher are awesome! Happy Birding!ReplyDelete
Balance is everything, right?ReplyDelete
What i like most in birds usually is their hairdo :-)
A very reflective post today Chris..onwards and upwards oui! I have a feeling with your new lens you will be unstoppable!ReplyDelete
You've created a blog that adores nature, and teaches us to fly.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Your surrondings are so diverse. Desert to lush green around a lake. I can see why the birds are so diverse.ReplyDelete
Great photos and great words Chris.ReplyDelete
Hi Chris, I haven't been to your blog is such a long time and I'm sorry about that. Your pictures, as usual, are wonderful. You captured those wee birds really well.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment on my post recently. :)
A very philosophical post Chris, and some great photos of fabulous birds. Wonderful!ReplyDelete
I like that, "wake the artist from within!" Pure poetry!ReplyDelete
Capturing the moments for that artist within...hard to do sometimes. Balance...elusive. But life is after all a journey, and each days's step is what's important....plus, there is always tomorrow. :-)ReplyDelete
