The Beauty of Parents' Interaction with Their Offspring.........

The Beauty of a Butterfly on a Flower......

This Little Chipmunk Utilizing a Natural Rock Formation for Shelter and Protection......

Observation of the Many Folds and Crevices Making up the Beauty of the Complete Rose....

The Magnificent Cloud Formations Interacting With the Blueness of the Sky as it Clears and the Sun Peaking Through Those Clouds. Nature in All Its Glory.....

 In this photo I Concentrated on The Toad's Expressive Eyes, the detail in his face. 
I used a Macro Filter to photograph this little guy.

Caught him as he was climbing up, trying to get away. With no where else to go he climbed down finally disappearing somewhere in the grass.

Just before Sunset, the Air was  Cold and Crisp. Waters of the Sound were Calm and Quiet;
So Still it appeared like one huge pane of glass. The Boardwalk was near Empty;
Skies were full of Beautiful Cloud Formations and Color.

 There appeared somewhat of a Fierceness to the Sky in the Midst of Boundless beauty

 Look at the parts of the whole in a different way; the lines of that average tree trunk; the irregularities of  that tree trunk and its branches; even the color and texture of the leaves; see the holes and shapes of that mushroom; the varied shapes and textures of those clouds. Through photography I've learned to be more observant and I've learned to see things in a different way than I used to.

Observe Your Surroundings! See What Nature Has to Offer. 
      There are beautiful things to photograph all over. You don't have to be a world traveler, or go far from your own backyard. Look out your window; Look above and notice how beautiful the sky is; Clouds, the Sun's Rays,  Flying Birds, Tops of Trees with their swaying branches and leaves, Sunsets, the Moon and it's surrounding Night Sky. Snowflakes and Raindrops.
      Look below at the beauty of each individual grass plant, fallen leaves, little crawling insects, ant hills, the individual parts of a flower's structure, even weeds, mushrooms, pebbles or rocks, fallen branches and twigs.   Each offers its own individuality and beauty.
