Wordless Wednesday: Look Closely

There in the river an egret stands
The egret in the river
There on the other side of the river Harbor Seals sleeping
The seals so far away and easy to miss
There in the horsetail grass a frog rests comfortably
The perfect froggy camouflage on a sunny day

    1. Patti-- Yes, I hadn't even thought about it that way. I could see them and get close without disturbing them!

  4. "There on the other side of the river Harbor Seals sleeping"

    There is a healing and sustaining power in sharing this sublime beauty and vulnerability. This is the time of year when it is possible to see tree frogs where I walk. It was yesterday in 2016 that I last saw a tree frog and noted it in the wildlife journal I have been keeping since the early 1990s. One must be wide awake and looking closely to see a tree frog here. Tree frogs bring me a feeling of joy.

    1. am-- I love seeing tree frogs too. There were two in the horsetail grasses. One was so small I almost missed it. This life, this is what we must protect, along with all the rest.

  5. It's easy to miss so much in our world when we're not paying attention. Those seals are REALLY hard to see, which is funny because they're so big!

    1. Steve-- When we first pulled up to the point to take a look, I thought there weren't any Harbor Seals. It really was HARD to see them. Zoom!

  8. Very nice. I love the small images I pull out of my kodak moments.Obviously, you are using a much more sophisticated camera. The seal image was wonderful.

    1. MRMacrum-- It made me very happy to see those seals. At first glance, I didn't see them, but it sure was great when we did!

  9. Good seeing! And your zoom is amazing. The image quality is excellent.
    The egret surrounded by all that seaweed is quite a sight. But I confess, what really gets me excited is the horsetail. Those plants haven't changed in 300 million years! That's how old that species is.
    It's spreading like crazy in my front yard in Hawley. I'm so happy!
