Michael's Rediscovery of Nature

Ramblings and observations of a former biologist and a lifelong naturalist, who has recently returned to his roots in east Texas. After a many years of working from coast to coast in an industry far removed from biology, it has been a pleasant change of geography, activity, and attitude. No stressful job decked out in a three piece suit. No city living. Instead there is a rediscovery of the woods, of something scurrying through the leaves, of the clear notes of a bird call, and of reliving the joy that I had when nature was a playground and a classroom.

My Favorite Photos From 2018

RedBelliedWoodpeckerMale012818 2 1Usually, I post the photos in a blog but this year I have made a video instead. 

For me, it has been a fantastic year on so many levels. I have been so lucky with the opportunities that have been given me with the birds and other natural subjects. 

Living on the edge of Lone Star Lake gives me so many photography targets and makes it so easy to get "out there".  Of course, I'm only minutes from Lake O' the Pines as well. It is a quick run down the highway to get into a great birding area on LOP. Somehow, I manage to get over there fairly often as well.

Of course, I go other places. One of the more fun trips birding this year was going with the Tyler Audubon Society to Mineola. If I remember correctly we saw 60 species that day. 

I'm looking forward to more of the same in the upcoming year.

I hope that you enjoy the show.
