Spring time is wonderful for a focus upon nature for several obvious reasons. I have compiled a few photos this week of local nature essence as this season unfolds. These are photographs from throughout my rural California mountain neighborhood this past week.
Though this picture's quality is poor due to my camera's limited zoom-in capacity, I was still elated to capture this Western Tanager from my back deck. I have actually never seen one of these birds in person, let alone getting them on camera.
Enjoy the environment surrounding you. Cherish your climate and local habitat. Pay attention to the sounds, sights, feelings. Reconnect with our Mother Earth.
