Project 10 is a group that I have participated in as a guest blogger for the past year. I really enjoy their choice of topics. Sometimes I come up with something, sometimes I am totally stumped. Sometimes I come up with the topic after the fact. This month was a good month for me. I love to walk in the wetlands. It gives me the opportunity to de-stress from my day to day job which has just changed again. Same company different workload. Another learning curve. That is all I seem to have done the past 2 years.
Walking in the wetlands also offers me something else. The opportunity to see wildlife in it’s natural form. Birds, gators, raccoons, bobcats (although I have yet to see it close up), otto’s (them too). I love it. I grew up being taught to appreciate nature. We had all sorts of critters in our home. Taking this walk just really settles my soul.
However, you can only take a Moorhen so many times and it becomes a little boring. So when I walk I tend to look for different things and experiment a little with how I take the photo. So here is the simplicity of nature as I see it through my eyes.
” A Withered Maple leaf has left its branch and is falling to the ground; its movements resemble those of a butterfly in flight. Isn’t it strange? The saddest and deadest of things is yet so like the gayest and most vital of all creatures?”

Thank you for letting me post in this group. I have really enjoyed staying a part of it and I am glad I was able to get it done. I hope that you all have a blessed Christmas and a very happy New Year. May you dream constantly, and may those dreams come to fruition in 2015.
