Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books. John Lubbock

I cannot believe how quickly the weeks are flying! Seems like I just posted "I Heart Macro" yesterday. I went for a Nature walk with SIL Kim and her 2 boys last Saturday. We had a blast, it is so fun to see things through a child's eyes. We went to a small wooded area right in the middle of town. I was surprised to see Whitetail Deer droppings and tracks. No, I did NOT take a picture of the droppings for proof. You will just have to take my word for it....haha!

Beautiful shots from your nature walk. Does it take you forever to decide which pics to save and load and then blog too? Love you quote at the end...nature is a wise teacher.

These are all so wonderful, but I just especially love that first shot. I was amazed when I saw it on the "Studio Waterstone" page. I was interested in the last of the leaves this time too, but you appear to have captured THE LAST LEAF! Great job!
