Although my hubby is not into photography quite as much as I am, he loves the results I have achieved with my cameras, and as I think I’ve mentioned before he enjoys taking me for drives around the countryside to look for photo ops, especially wildlife. Because he leaves for work so early in the morning, he sees animals all the time that always seem elusive to me, like deer for instance. One weekend I was so jealous of his wildlife sighting stories that we decided to try our luck in an area that is known as a bird and wildlife sanctuary. Unfortunately, I still didn’t have much luck because all of the animals must have been away visiting relatives, but I wasn’t about to waste a day out with my camera so I stopped, looked around and realized that I was surrounded by beauty.
It was so peaceful walking around enjoying nature that day. I always find it so calming to the soul, which is so important nowadays with how busy and stressful life can be. The sanctuary was very marshy so besides the inevitable mosquitoes there were also a lot of bull rushes, weeds, and these lovely lily pads.
