In looking through my pictures I have some that I took just for fun.Actually I take most of my pictures for fun,but these are ones I really like.
I took a walk at our local lake the other day and even though I did not see many birds,as I had hoped,I found other interesting things to photograph.
I noticed this piece of old bark on the ground.I liked the bright colour on it.
Then as I was walking along,surrounded by small shrubs,I noticed that some of last years leaves were still hanging on to the branches.The sun was hitting this one and making it shine.
Here is another leaf,a different shape but still pretty to me.
I then looked down and noticed a curled up leaf on the ground.Again,as the sun hit this leaf it looked pretty and was a bright spot on the woodland floor.
This picture is from a different place but also taken a few weeks ago.
No matter how many Mallard pictures I have,I can't resist a beauty like this.
It looks like he is swimming on a sea of silk.
Thought for Today:
If you can't go for a walk to enjoy the natural beauty around you,
then at least spend time drinking in beautiful scenery from a coffee-table book of nature that you keep for that very purpose.
