NATURE AND NATURAL

CFFC: Nature

Big and powerful, small and feathered, we are part of nature and she is part of us.

  4. I love your take on this topic – nature can indeed be huge or tiny! Your goldfinch photo is a great example of the perfection of ‘small nature’ 🙂

    • Thanks, Sadje. Yesterday got so busy I really didn’t have time to do more than one post. This one is working out very busy too. And tomorrow, I have the cardiologist, so ANOTHER busy one. After that, though, it will calm down a lot.

        • It’s just doctor appointments — many of which have been delayed and can’t be delayed again. I’ve got another one tomorrow. It’s an annual one, but it’s the cardiologist and he’s really busy, so I don’t dare cancel.

            • I’m counting on it being routine. I have no reason to expect otherwise. The surgery on my heart was really superbly done. While I can’t take credit for the work, I can pat myself on the back for doing the research to find THE best heart surgeon in Boston and having him do the work. I know many people who’ve had heart surgeries with many more problems, but I had a really great surgeon! He was originally from your part of the world, by the way. He came from Pakistan and did his medical degree at Cambridge and then 10 years of surgery in London, then a move to Boston. He’s not much of a talker, but most surgeons aren’t “people friendly.” I have learned that what you want in a surgeon isn’t friendship: it’s skills!

    • They are my favorites too and I think the pictures I do best. I think they have always been my best photos. For a long time, I didn’t think they were worth much because they came so easily. Eventually I realized that just because they were easy for me didn’t make them easy.

    • I love both of them. That funny little baby Goldfinch and the sleepy squirrel. Sometimes they sleep on the deck railing. Lucky for us, we still have a railing. A big branch fell and took a whack at it yesterday afternoon. Lost a feeder, but the rest of the deck is still intact. Need to get that tree down before it collapses on its own.
