Life has happened and time has passed without so much as a single photo blog post.

Osprey in flight
Osprey in flight

It was a clear beautiful day in Southwest Florida in February.  I stood below the Osprey nest.  The parents circled above me.  They checked me and my suspicious looking camera.  Babies in the nest called out.  I felt a chill in the 80 degree temperature, one wrong move on my part and surly I would encounter the wrath of one of the parents.

All was good and it was a beautiful experience.

My friend caught this little guy at 6:00 pm on February 15, 2012, while dock fishing on Captiva Island, Fl.

in the eyes

On the 10th tee, I stood quietly waiting on a sunny warm February day.  Golf carts whizzed by and I could hear the thwacking of golf balls.  I paid little to no attention to the golfers as they came and went.  I was completely focused on watching this heron stalking his prey.  His hunting game was much more interesting to me.  The intensity of the eyes, and there was a quivering in his throat as he made a guttural sound with each methodical and slow step towards the fish of his dreams.

glitz and putz

Sharing a scene from my desk top.

At one time I knew the origins of the Christmas Bottle Brush tree.  These are all reproductions, not vintage but still I think they have a certain charm, not too glitzy, ready to be placed in a putz.

I tried to research their history on-line, but the only thing I could find was where to purchase and how to make.  Being a little impatient this morning, I moved on to other things.  So, if you know, leave a comment and share with me.
