Exploring Nature One Step At A Time

Hiking with a Tufted Titmouse, Box Turtle, Squirrel and Chipmunk

Due to the extreme temperatures I have been hiking much earlier in the morning. The limited light often makes it difficult to photograph the many beautiful sights.  I have begun to see another world as the rays of the rising sun crests the surrounding Mountains.

Colorful Flowers glow in the half light along fences  as I hike toward North Mountain. Small shadows take shape as I move closer, a Chipmunk climbing on the rocks and a Squirrel foraging in the grass.  A faint song draws me closer and I can see a lovely little Tufted Titmouse chick grooming on the branch above me.  A lump on the trail ahead of me comes into focus and it is beautiful Box Turtle stretching it’s neck.

So much is revealed in the light of a new morning, Nature lifts my Spirit…
Love to ALL!

  1. I love this blog. All of my faves (sans a mockingbird) but that’s okay as there’s a turtle and an ant and a landed hummingbird and a chipmunk and much more. BEAUTIFUL photos! Love ur DH Rick x0x0x
