One of the things I love about photography is that my camera gives me the opportunity to “capture the moment.” Whether it is a quiet sunset, a surging wave, a golden hour sunrise, a new bird to learn about, or some other surprise in nature, snapping shots gives me an opportunity to enjoy the moment again.
Nature has always been my passion and since living part-time on the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington State, I have photographed many of the birds I see. Some are residents, others migrate through, and I feel a sense of accomplishment when I’m able to identify the bird(s) from the shots I’ve taken.
Sanderling & Western Sandpiper, Turkey Vulture, Long-billed Dowitcher, Ruddy Turnstone.
To finish, here are a couple more favorite “capture the moment” photos. A Song Sparrow is having a good-old-time in a small bird bath – its enthusiasm is infectious! Open field Wild Roses thrive in the Pacific Northwest and provide food for bees.
Wherever you are grooving, please honor our earth, be kind and stay safe.🐾
Thanks to Anne of Slow Shutter Speed for this interesting challenge! It is truly an honor to be asked to host the weekly challenge, and also a big responsibility to read and respond to all of us who post. Hats off to all those who stepped up this summer to give our main hosts a bit of a respite.
