Spectacle

I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.

~John Burroughs

It has been a great winter of experiences in nature. I have had the pleasure of sharing many special sights and sounds with a number of special people, as well as having moments of solitude in the presence of incredible beauty and awe. Friday evening was one of those special moments, with two of us going to the refuge a day early to prepare for a trip with a wonderful group of educators the next day. The birds continue their elusive and somewhat unpredictable ways but we found them and managed to place ourselves in their path back to the safety of Pungo Lake as the sunlight faded. I only had the iPhone out, and it did an adequate job of trying to share the moment, in spite of my crooked horizon:)

I just let it run while my senses tried to take it all in as they were put in order.

Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife, are, in fact, plans to protect man.
