Look at the birds! They don’t worry about what to eat—they don’t need to sow or reap or store up food—for your heavenly Father feeds them. Matthew 6:26 TLB
I haven’t written since May of 2017 and with the start of a new year I felt like it was time and to get you caught up on what I’ve been up to. For several years the Bay of Fundy has been my primary focus but in 2017 I decided to turn my focus to the local wildlife.
I’m not sure if it was by coincidence or divine intervention but I was fortunate to capture several images of some of my favourite birds. Perhaps my wife was the good luck since she was with me for several sightings.
There is something special about seeing a large raptor or heron in the wild. Every time I come away with a new photograph but also a new appreciation for the animal and their survival instincts. As a spectator in different locations the one constant I notices was their ability to go about their business with little concern about me, with the exception of an osprey feeding its young. Don’t mess with a mom!
As I edited, filed and sorted my images the Bible verse above came to mind on several times. Over the years it’s become my go-to scripture during the stressful or anxious times of life.
Nature photography is dual purpose for me. I love being outside photographing nature and enjoying the wild places, but it’s also a time to enjoy all the God has made. It’s also a great reminder that if He can create and care for all it, He can certainly look after all my needs.
