I am constantly amazed at the beauty in nature all around me. It does not matter if I’m in the desert, in a forest, or at the ocean. The saying, stop and smell the roses, comes to mind as we walk by such beautiful things every single day and most of us don’t even notice them. Life would be less stressful for all of us if we did.
There is a pair of ground owls a few streets from my home that live in some tunnels they created on a property that’s been for sale for some time. When it is getting close to sunset I will take a drive down that street and just look at them. This year I got to see a third ground owl with the other two so a baby was added to the family. I’ve yet to be able to get what I consider a good photograph of them, as I don’t like to stop to long so that they don’t become nervous of my presence.
It’s also known that the first thing the owls will go for is your eyes if they feel threatened and I personally would like to keep my vision so I can enjoy the beauty they add to our world. I hope you will take time to add some beauty to your life. It’s not about just going through each day, stuck in your routines and trying to juggle all of life. It’s also about enjoying that which is around you all the time, each season, a flower, an animal, clouds, rainbows and even sunsets.
Share in the beauty around you and I hope you have a blessed day!
