“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”
― Edward Hersey Richards

  1. Overwhelming gorgeousness! Love the black butterfly, white pelican, and large blue flower! Those are my favorites. What is that flower? Another favorite is the first picture top left. The bird with the rust colored breast, the bright eye, and the straight beak; what is he?? He is another favorite. You are an awesome photographer, naturalist, and blogger!
