Great Horned Owl
This time out I took the big camera with me and was able to capture a few more photos of the owl as well as a nice one of a whitetail buck. Even though I see these animals and birds often while I'm walking, it still gives my heart a thrill to see them up-close or even far in the distance. The sounds of the trees creaking in the wind, the scuffle of the jackrabbits out of their burrows, the brisk chill of a fall day, the silent flight of the owl, draw me close to the Creator of it all.
One of my granddaughters is very excited about all things nature. When we are together she wants to look through the bird field guides with me and show me her nature drawings.
She tells me, "Gram, there are so many, many things to learn about, aren't there?"
Be still my heart,
someone who loves nature like I do!
(and she's my neighbor)
What is the good of your stars and trees,
your sunrise and the wind,
if they do not enter into our daily lives?
