Gy had a school project a while ago. She needed to take a picture of a bird and upload it to www.ebird.org
Now, I am no photographer. But, the spouse likes to play around with camera settings.
And, just like that, one evening, this lovely fellow (or lady?) came and perched itself right on top of the tree near our home. He stayed put for a whole ten minutes, almost as if he knew he was being photographed!
The thing about this picture is the number of things it brings home to me.
- We live in Nature's backyard, which can take your breath away.
- Nature will touch us, if we allow ourselves to pause and drink it in.
- Nature teaches us balance. The more we admire, the more we have to be wary of. That's a powerful lesson, in my opinion.
- Above all, it teaches me peace.
What was your lesson today?
