I am partial mantis and scorpions but I luv all of nature.

4

The sway of trees in the mild summer winds

I most enjoy witnessing life in extreme enviroments. Such as the hot springs of Yellowstone, the caves of Carlsbad and the mountains of Big Bend. The area is so hostile yet life survives.

Social aspect of animals, interesting physical development of plant life

Sunsets and sunrises. Equally humbling and awe-inspiring.

Ocean waves crashing.

The Ocean

Wild animals. Mountain goat mother and kid at Lake Colchuck (6,000'😉, WA. I have never seen a baby Mountain Goat this small.

4

I love wildflowers. Cliff Penstemon flowers suspended over Icicle Creek, WA. Extremely rare Tweedy's Lewisia only grows in certain exposures and elevations in North Central Washington.

EVERYthing ! The sky, trees, soil, insects, wildlife, weather, water, growing things, where trails lead to, sounds, sun, moon, clouds , and on and on.

I love watching birds interact with each other and how they use their wings to serve as expressions. I love the stillness and breeze of being near water . Sunrises and sunsets and the different animals that respond to each change

Very poetic and romantic

Far more things than I care to specify.

3

Ocean waves, animals, trees, flowers, pretty much everything.

As a mushroom picker, that's easy. A big patch of chanterelles with a couple of cauliflower mushrooms!

3

The movement of the tall grass. During summer vacations, in the Patagonia, I always sat on the back porch of my granny's ranch and delighted myself watching the green sea moving back & forth...

3

Caves and rock formations. I always have a sense of awe inside of caves. I also really like rocks and stones and gems.

3

All of it.

3

Sound of the forest, animal behavior in the wild and as homely pets. The beauty in the grace, shape and curve of the human female. The voice of a woman as she whispers.

I love hiking to high alpine lakes surrounded by white glaciers and jagged mountain peaks. After dark, I look up and feel awed by the glowing Milky Way and billions of sparkling stars.

Hiking is a transcendent, uplifting experience for me. It engages all of my senses. Most importantly, it calms my busy mind. I feel most centered and grounded in the mountains.

When sunlight filters through the trees the way it does with lace curtains, I feel an enveloping happiness to be alive. This is the core of being human. My joy is made stronger by the certainty that someday it will all come to an end. It’s a rare gift to understand that your life is wonderous, and that it won’t last forever.

Me too

Love what you shared, both the prose and pictures.

tioteo, Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate it.

How much time do you have?

In short, everything I can. But everything from the smallest insect to the biggest trees. As a shutterbug, I mostly take pics of birds, more birds. flowers, moss, mushrooms, butterflies, dragonflies.

Water: the ocean, s lake, rivers, ponds. Always changing.

Bugs. I really like to just sit still and watch them go about their daily activities.
Ants are especially interesting.

You are my people. ❤

@Qualia I am flattered. I thought I was boring.

@Donotbelieve No you're not. LOL
Turns out, after a bumpy start, we seem to have a fair amount of similar views etc. Bugs last straw, following. LOL
And then you have what looks like a kiing snake on your profile. Done.

I am always taking macro pictures of bugs because they are so cool.

@Qualia This makes me happy.

@Sciencemama Beetles can be so beautiful. I would like to see some of your pictures.

@Donotbelieve I don't have access to the digital files atm, but I took pictures of photos I had in an album of some of my insects with my phone. I can't find my dragonflies though.

Hoverfly (mimics a bee in markings), flesh fly (icky name but cool eyes), and japanese beetles getting it on.

@Sciencemama thanks! ♡

Water. Watching water flow, or fall, or swirl, or crash in waves... it’s so cathartic. The look of water, the sound of water... from a little stream to the giant oceans, it’s one of the most amazing things in nature.

Where water meets land and sky

Waves and the sound and smell of rain. I've lived in the desert my whole life, being able to take in the Ocean with all of my senses is rare, almost as rare as rainfall here in Vegas.
