The scent of the fresh earth rises up from the forest floor as I search the fallen leaves for signs of the emerging Spring. Care must be taken to not disturb any forest dwellers that hide just below the leaf layer. So I extend my monopod and poke around a bit looking for movement. I’ve never found a viper in this area but there’s a first time for everything. Just above me a chipmunk scurries to the other end of the fallen tree and disappears into the thick leaf layer.
A tiny grass spider discreetly climbs from under a nearby leaf and quietly yields right of way to the giant kneeling down in her domain. She’s only interested in remaining invisible and is soon gone. Without her kind I’d be overrun with pests and so I wait patiently for her to be one her way. This is her property too and she has the right to be here.
Looking up to the Dutchman’s Breeches I see that most of them are now open. I know that when they are here that it’s not long before the bluebells arrive. I missed them last year and I’ve been looking forward to a second chance to capture their beauty as well. Mostly I just take a moment to enjoy the outdoors and a little peace of mind.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
I want you to join my group on MeWe: https://mewe.com/join/lloydslensphotographydiscussiongroup
