Musings of a roaming nature nerd

Life with a photograph

And then there are moments, days, weeks when words do not come. So we snap away, capturing a blurred time in crisp imagery. We reconnect, we remember, we experience it all again through our images. A naturalist savors the details and the unhurried pace of prolonged observation. Thus the photograph becomes a medium for discovery. Observing forever one moment in time.

The Pacific

 

River rocks

 

Sarcodes sanguinea / A Snow Plant busily not photosynthesizing, but rather feeding off the damp decaying matter underneath it. Awesome!

 

Aquilegia formosa / Scarlet Columbine

 

A gigantic praying mantis, rescued by my mom from a parking lot in PA.

 

Milkweed bug babies

 

Water striders and their lovely concentric circles

 

Montropa uniflora/ Indian Pipe also busily not photosynthesizing!

 

A warm summer morning

 

New Hampshire, where the nomadic naturalist took her first steps...
