Hello again! I know, I know it has been a very long time. We made a lot of changes in our life last year: 3 new jobs between the two of us, moved from Mississippi to Louisiana, and them from Louisana back to Ohio. Thankfully it was a mild winter, for Ohio, but not near as nice as we have grown accustomed to down south.
Well, here we are in the middle of Coronavirus pandemic. My wife Monica is now working from home like so many others, and my work has divided us into two teams. I worked last week and I’m off this week. So far, everyone is healthy. So it is my first morning “off” from work and I just couldn’t sleep in or anything, so I got up before the sunrise and grabbed the camera for some social distancing out in nature. I didn’t see or speak to anyone, except myself, the birds, and that one muddy hill that almost took me out (you know who you are).
Today I’ll post the pics I got, that actually came as a bit of a surprise. I was not expecting to see a Yellow Rumped Warbler by no means, this early and in Ohio, but I did, and he posed quite well for me I must say.
The morning started out kind of chilly and windy, but the wind died down some, and with the sun shining bright, it turned out to be a great morning for some photography. As I walked a trail that I used to fish from so very long ago, I saw the jumpy little Warbler flitting about. Although they rarely seem to sit still, he did work with me and give me a couple of nice photo opportunities.
I still get amazed at how blue a fresh spring sky can be, and it is ours to enjoy for free. I’m telling you, whether you can get out into the woods or just sit in your own backyard, take advantage of this lull in our lives and get out and get some fresh air. It will do your mind and spirit good, and you may just find that it will do your body some good as well.
I hope to be a little more regular in the coming weeks with my blog posts, I still have some other great shots from this mornings trip to share with you all. Here in the near future I will be putting together a calendar filled with “Ohio” photos. From buckeyes to covered bridges and of course my favorite, the birds, will be beautifully displayed for you to enjoy at work or at home. Please send me comment if you’d like one (or a few!) and I’ll get right on it for you.
From my camera to you, “Enjoy Our Wonderful World!”
