Come Along On A Morning Round

Almost every morning when home I head out about forty five minutes before sunrise. Hopefully to catch the color of dawn in the sky. To watch the sunrise then head for the water be it lake or river. Old habits die hard an oh so true statement. Years of rising early to be on the water to work as a fishing guide became ingrained in me.

Actually the early rising get out in the woods or to the water habit began around the time I was 10 years old. Then it was head to the mountain behind the house to watch the deer, birds, squirrels or any other critter out and about at daybreak. Rushing home to catch the bus for school.

Now I spent two to three hours attempting to photograph any wildlife I come across. Most times some specific subject in mind but open to any critter I may come across. Mindful of the nudges I often get to go here or there or shift position. I don’t think that is due to any mystical occurrence but drawing on a lifetime of memories tucked in to brain cells that get triggered by something.

Then back to the house and if energy allows a walk around the farm or in the garden now that it is summer. Well that’s about it folks. Keep it simple, enjoy what you enjoy, live each day to the fullest.

By the way that is my favorite perch at the top of the steps of our back porch in the fifth photo today. Notice I did not clean up before the picture. Step ladder, mopĀ  and bucket on each side of the door. The grandkids are in for the week, so it is a special week regardless of the bounty nature provides…

  1. Stunning images as always, and the summary just wonderful. The sunrise images are so magnificent. I have yet to see my first Sphinx/Hummingbird Moth yet this season. I really love watching and photographing them. Never even heard of them, or saw them until a few years ago. Have a great time with the grands visit~

      Mary Howell Cromer,
      Thank You. I agree the hummingbird moths are fascinating to watch. I so look forward to them late each spring and through the summer. Will have fun with the grands for sure…
