Walking With Eagles is a collection of original poems and photographs by Lindy Low Le Coq. A lifelong naturalist, amateur photographer and bird enthusiast, Lindy’s verse, composition and photographs open a window into the essence of her subjects.

Bald Eagles mature over the course of five years. Walking With Eagles invites the reader to take a poetic and visual tour of this odyssey.

Wherever birds and fog find you, please honor our earth, be kind and stay safe.🐾
When I noticed Cee’s fun foto challenge for this week, I began to see curves and circles all around me! Here are some, all but the mushroom, from my walks this week.
Whether you’re going in circles or simply on a winding path, please honor our earth, be kind and stay safe.
This week Tina gives us carte blanche on what we feature, so long as our images portray opposites, not in the sense of opposing, more along the lines of contrasting. To open, I chose to feature a duckling and a drake. Both are Mallard ducks, however they are “opposites” in age and maturity.
My next pair of photos features the same subject – Lilac blossoms. The first one is of a bloom on a seasonally warm spring day while the second shows emerging buds covered in unseasonably cold snow!
A few years ago I “adopted” the benches along the two trails leading from the Breakers Condominium structures to the beach. Most were functioning and just needed a fresh coat of paint, except this one. Since all the parts were still there, I bought some zinc wood-screws, brought out my power screwdriver and put it back together. Now all the benches get a fresh coat of paint before I leave for the summer!
Meadow to marsh, marsh to meadow; the acreage between the buildings and the ocean berm is owned by the Breakers Condominium Association Long Beach. From early summer to early winter the land is a thriving meadow inhabited by songbirds and frequented by mule deer. As rainfall increases in autumn, the meadow transforms to a marsh that hosts many aquatic birds, like the Mallards in my first images.
Another contrast in the two images above is the light of bright afternoon sunshine, compared to the dark of early evening fog.
