Red-Winged Blackbirds?

Certainly the name comes from the dark, shiny black color with red and yellow painting on the wings of the males.

But if you don’t know the female of the red-winged bird you would not recognized her. Her brown and cream and not so shiny color is not as attractive as the male.  But still the male is the one that look for her attention.

I enjoy this little details of life, these birds you can see them everywhere but do we stop to notice this things. The amazing creativity behind nature, is beauty in simplicity.

Focus On The Search

How focus are we when we are trying to get something that we want or that we need? If the Osprey that I photograph here wasn’t focus enough on its search for food, it would not eat. While I was trying to get him focus on my lens, the osprey was in its search for food. He tried and tried again, soaring while looking down, then trying to get low to get a closer look, then went up again. This happens over and over again until he was able to catch his fish, and then flew away.

Maybe we should have that kind of focusing when we want something. Instead of giving up we should try again and again, at the end it will pay off.

Making an Event of Anything

Some people take for granted the little things of life. I love to run bicycle outdoors because it gives me a chance to appreciate nature. I always carry my camera everywhere I go, specially on outdoor activities. Here is a typical Florida afternoon in October. My husband and I went for a ride. Other people are walking or biking too. There are boats on the lake moving around , some families are having a afternoon picnic at the gazebos. Parents are with their kids at the playground, and here I am stopping every few minutes to take pictures. Here are some of them.

Inspired to Travel!

The beauty of this world and the mysteries behind every culture are two of the many things that inspire me to travel. The curiosity to understand what others had left behind for us to enjoy or learn. The perfection of nature and the details behind its beauty, blows my mind away.img_3539img_8479img_3829img_8438img_3624dsc_4738dsc_4805img_3106img_8298img_8097img_8490-1

Afternoon Display of Colors

Gallery of colors and beauty over the Kissimmee skies on a Saturday afternoon.  Sometimes the places that you see often could be magical if you change the way you observed  them.

Until then,
