There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter. Rachel Carson

I am a 76 year old retired teacher with an avid interest in hiking and photography. I am not a professional photographer, but spend almost every day exploring the natural world, taking pictures and honing my skills. When I review the pictures I have taken, I love researching information about the things I have found-- and then sharing my results with others. The time I have spent walking in the woods (including 4 months on the Appalachian Trail at 68) has always been somewhat therapeutic. When I added photography to the mix a few years ago, it quadrupled the therapeutic effect! Opening pictures on my computer at the end of the day is like opening presents. There are always surprises! It allows me to see so many details that were not visible to my naked eye! I have learned so many new things about birds and bugs, reptiles and mammals that I never knew before--and I have also found, that when I share with others, I invariably learn something new!

Very nice, Jeanne, thank you for posting these for us!
Great start to your blog. I love the quotes and bird calls.
Great work! I can’t wait to see more posts! ❤️
Thanks for all your help!
I’m so glad you are ‘blogging’ I look forward to reading and enjoying many more of your posts – I enjoyed the video of the bird sounds. You have a talent for taking engaging bird pictures, making me want to know more about the birds in my home state of Washington.
I’m glad you enjoy the blog–I’m learning as I go!
Thanks, Lynette. Are you getting email notifications when a new blog comes up?
Wonderful new endeavor, Jeanne! You never cease to amaze me with your many and varied talents!
Trying again. There are a couple of places to leave messages. Maybe did wrong one last time? Still love the blog.
