Today I spent time with a friend in the forest, along the creek, and at the trickling falls. It is always nice to be with someone who notices the same way I do: with a still child-like sense of wonder and appreciation for the simple things in nature.

Toad 3-1While the photo above looks like an abstract, can you spy the critter hiding out down there under the water?

Pond skaters 2-1Pond skaters skating on the sky.

whirly gigs 1-1

Whirligigs are always entertaining to watch (if not a bit difficult to capture with camera).

bubbles 4-1Saponins make for the best bubbles and swirls along the churning creeks.

fall leaf 2-1

Yes, the signs are few but clearly here.

 We have seem a lot of changes around these parts lately (fall leaves being the least of them), but the wonder and noticing never cease.

Are you taking time to notice little things?

I hope so.

    Beautiful pictures… And YES! I might be one of the most frustrating people to people that don’t notice. But I think it,s an amazing quality. Nothing is boring when you notice everything. Cause then even a trail you’ve hiked a million time feels new.
