I love this time of year. New life is sprouting all over the place and wildlife is wonderfully abundant. My own life is far from "a walk in the park" but seeing all this natural beauty breathes light and energy into me. I shot most of these images yesterday and today.
How can anyone not experience some sense of hope and appreciation for life when in the presence of nature? It's always an anecdote for my weary heart or on days when darkness outweighs the light. I feel extraordinarily lucky that animals, birds, and all life are so special to me. Every sighting is a gift.
I'm an artist, writer, photographer, private investigator and an activist in small ways.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
"The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
