Summer Nature

The warm summer days bring out all of nature’s beauty and colors. It is hard to imagine how nature effortlessly creates so much beauty in small things that bring us such joy.

Nature inspires us to see beyond all the challenges of life to find gifts that give us moments of happiness, inspiration and wonder.

I would like to dedicate this post to my mother who instilled in me her love and respect for nature and all its beauty and blessings. It is a lesson and gift that I never take for granted.

    As always, beautiful photos! I believe my favorite has to be the close up of the hummingbird. So much detail, the feathers look nearly like scales. Wonderful dedication as well. She’s proud of you.

    What spectacular pictures. I particularly like the last but one. You can’t beat nature for colour combinations, or drawing parallels – though it takes a photographer to grasp the moment and capture it. Impressive!
