I love taking photographs, to distract myself from the sorrow of my brother passing away on Saturday I decided to take my camera and see what I could capture in my lens.
This first photo is a little hawk that flew over to a fence post in the field next door. He sat there for a very long time, letting me get the photo I wanted. He looked at me as I tried to hide behind a bush, so I would not scare him away.
Then I saw these buzzards trying to stay on tree limbs as the wind blew madly and ruffled their feathers.
I captured some toadstools growing on the edge of someone’s yard.
I ventured a few miles down the road, went past this swampy area and took pictures of the water lilies floating on the water.
Saw a row of pine trees growing on the edge of a field. Liked the light shining between the trees.
And for a little fall color I snapped the seed pod of the castor bean that grows in the yard. Being in nature soothes the soul and takes the stress and anxiety of life away immediately.
