Moss on a fallen tree can be so beautiful, especially in a fern forest.

I am always amazed by something so small, becoming something so large; just like how these small acorns with their potential to become a beautiful tree.

Photo Friday: On the Brink

August 4, 2017

Recently, I read a list of animals on the brink of extinction, and on this list was the beautiful monarch butterfly.  The reason they gave was a fake science started by a psychiatrist as a social experiment, and pushed by liberal, tree hugging, nut jobs like Al Gore.  Of course, I’m talking about “global warming”, but this is neither a political blog, nor a “fake news” blog, so let’s move on.

As soon as I saw them on the list, I began looking, and of course I found this female monarch.  She was resting in a tree long enough for me to get a couple of shots in.

The rain can bring out some beautiful morning creatures, like this snail.  They’re small, and hard to see when you’re not looking for them, but they make great subjects.

First Look Photo: Different Kind of Paper

Today’s picture is of paper tree bark.  The importance of this bark is it used to be used as paper to write on; of course this was before they had paper mills.

The Portland Headlight is the most photographed in the world.  The challenge of the headlight is to take a different shot.  This week I went to Fort Williams before the sun rise.  I found this view with a tree that I found pleasant.

First Look Photo: Resting Hawk

February 1, 2017

Today’s photo is of a red tailed hawk I see every morning on the path home.  I figure it is just waking up when I get out of work, and it flew off right after I got this shot.
