  1. Ah Amy, to touch Mother is a blessing indeed. That love heightens our senses, lets us see what others cannot and guides us to what is waiting for us.
    And miracles are built on those very blessings dear lady, thank you for sharing them 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. Mark, what a beautiful comment! Bless your heart! I love sharing what Mother allows me to experience. And in so doing, I hope that those who do see what I show, begin to understand what a glorious relationship anyone can have with Mother if they choose to do so. Much love to you this day! Have a great weekend!! xo

  2. Beautiful photos Amy, I just love ducks. There are so many different species and the colors are magnificant. I rarely see anything but Mallards. Like you said, some of the other species are just stopping by in my area. So it is a treat to see one. I love getting to locations like that where you can just get lost in time for awhile. Have a good day Amy.

    1. You are so right, Sandra. There are so many species of ducks. In fact, I found another species April 1st which I have not shown (yet), a type of Grebe. It is a treat for me to see as well those that migrate here. What joy!! I attempt to get into this park and others as much as possible. And as you know, this is where I get lost in another world. (smile) Have a great weekend!! Much love to you! xo

    1. Thank you, Hein. The Bufflehead is so tiny (pigeon size) and was so far away, I consider myself fortunate to have gotten any images in clearly. I would love to sneak up this guy but they are very people shy. Have a great day today!! xo

    1. When I step off trail, Dan, the biggest concern is ticks which I take precautions for. I am very aware of where my feet step. Nothing will prevent me from documenting Spring walking up. I’m so glad you enjoyed my pictures. I was thrilled to see what I did that day! Happy Weekend!! xo

    1. You are so so very welcome!! Nature is heaven, I totally agree with you. When we allow ourselves to let go, relax, and get into the Moment, we before our stunned eyes, walk into another world. This is the world I prefer. (smile) You stay well too! Much love to you! xo

      2. Stacy Anne, I am touched you trusted me enough to tell me your story. Bless your heart! It clearly comes across to me, as an empath and sensitive, that your energy is feminine. Perhaps some day you can open a blog to encourage others not to walk away from their dreams, no matter how difficult it is. Keep strong and love yourself for who you are. I will be posting as often as I can with the Beauty I see. It is people like you who I am so grateful to the most, who genuinely appreciate what I freely give here. May your Sunday be filled with love, peace and laughter. Much love to you! xo

      3. Hon, truth be told my life does not hold too much room for back and forth emailing. I take care of special needs cats (our family!), some of them who in their older years have stopped eating and I have to feed them by hand for a total of 10-12 times per day. That is only part of what I do. There is lots “other”. Then my home and all that entails. My photography. My blog. My gardens which I am just beginning to open now for the season, which are massive in number. I have “special needs” as well which means it is imperative I create a PT routine for myself consistently. I am also married so as in any relationship, it takes time to keep the relationship strong. I would love to have the time to chat with you, honest. I will copy your email, however, just in the event I do have a slot of time open for me just to sit and chat. Much love to you!! (((HUGS)))!! xo

      5. See? With what you just wrote here, you can touch a lot of people. You have learned compassion, and self-love. You know what a difficult journey is and to not give up no matter what. I can relate, believe me. If you have time read a little about me in my main menu. I started life with no love and a lot of abuse. Today I know who I am and will not budge from who I am. Amazingly, with a lot of Inner Guidance, I now respect and admire and love who I’ve become, the person I was meant to be. Yes, I understand. SMILE! xo

  4. Gorgeous creatures. A family of ducks lives on the river here. They are delightful neighbors. Wow, about the chickadee. It’s funny how they are the ones that seem to come closest, while larger birds keep their distance. Have a beautiful weekend, dear Amy.🦆🦆🦆

    1. Thank you SO much, Julie! I love hunting birds, especially the migratory ones. One year this nature preserve had Loons fly in, something out of the ordinary. I missed that event however, being so busy in my gardens. I honestly wish I could hire someone to do my gardens so I could have more time with my cameras. You know what? I am going to put that “request” out to the Universe and trust I am not only heard, but I will be answered.
      We have a Mr. and Mrs. Duckie (Mallard) that nest near our property and every year they come waddling across our backyard to eat the birdseed. I smile every time I see them.
      You have a beautiful weekend as well. I’m heading back out to continue on my gardens. Muscles that I haven’t used since last Fall are being felt. Keep smiling and sending out your Beautiful Light into this troubled world. Much love to you! xo

    1. Oh wow, THANK YOU! I am so touched by your words and am thrilled just thrilled you came by to see this post. I have so many more beautiful posts to come. My next one will show some amazing life in my gardens. Just have patience because this is my seriously busy time. Between opening my gardens for the season and my intent on photographing birds, landscapes and flowers, I am a human whirlwind these days. LOL Have a wonderful weekend, Parikhit. xo

  5. Great shots Amy!! OMG love the Bufflehead duck! I’ve never seen one nor did I even know they existed before seeing your photo! It’s quite exciting to get something like that – congrats! I understand what you mean when you talk about being one with Mother – nature sees you are a part of them and not an outsider! Have a great weekend! Much love, Donna

    1. Oh, Donna!! I got such a kick out of your comment! Your genuine excitement came clear across to me. You GET ME! And you understand the thrill of the hunt to capture what I do. Yes that Bufflehead Duck led me a good chase, darn duck(!), but I was so determined to photograph him. Isn’t he exquisite? There is another duck I saw another day that I plan on posting soon. These are transitory birds here. They come in, rest and then poof, gone. I would love to get over to this nature preserve every day to check the status quo but …. I’ve started on my gardens and the weather dictate the time when I can go. I follow my “instincts” so when I do go, I am rewarded plenty! I’m not surprised you understand about being One with Mother. It is the greatest feeling on this earth, IMO, one can experience. (besides sex LOL)
      I am having a great weekend. I just came in finishing up what I wanted to in my gardens, and changing lenses on one of my cameras, am heading back outdoors to shoot some flowers. THANK YOU so much for what you said here. It is genuine people like you that keeps me going here on this blog. Bless you from the bottom of my heart!! You have a great weekend too! BIG (((HUGS))) xo

    1. I saw another species of ducks the last time I visited this nature preserve and am crossing fingers to see more, if I am lucky. Yes I did get pictures of this other duck, not very good ones cuz these guys were so far away but that didn’t stop me. So glad you saw this post of what Mother in Her generosity gives me. Much love to you! xo

    1. Nothing is going to stop me from going out in Nature at one of the most exciting times of the year for a photographer, Ali. So many birds are flying in right now and my excitement is bubbling over. I can’t wait to return to this nature preserve to see what I else has come in. Just today I saw a Purple Finch and an American Goldfinch in our backyard. YAY!! Finches are back!! Have a great Sunday! Much love to you! xo

    1. Dear friend, Mother has allowed me entry in Her world so deeply at times I honestly have trouble believing it myself. To walk in that bliss is certainly heaven for me. It is magical. There is no other way to say it. Thank you so much for viewing my latest posts. I so appreciate the time you took to do so. Much love and HUGS!! xo

    1. Shweta, please go outside for walks when the sun is out. I would be out of my mind if I did not go for my daily walks and get out into the forest. I don’t know how you are doing what you are. Much love to you! And you are very very welcome for my pictures! xo

      1. The government regulations prohibit us from going out unless it’s for a grocery run. But in a country as densely populated as India, it is required. It would be a catastrophe if community spread were to occur. Many people who were supposed to be in quarantine had violated that and stepped out. So honestly, I don’t feel comfortable going out. But my balcony is long enough. I can walk around there and look at what’s happening around me. Blogging is keeping me sane. And my friends and family who are constantly in touch. Tough as it may sound, it is a necessary evil. We have to contain the disease. And there are a lot of people under quarantine near where I live. So I’ve got to the all precautions. So I’m perfectly happy. 😄 Thanks a lot, dear. You stay safe. Take care.

  7. It’s a wonderful feeling when our feet fly off the ground .,.
    As we become one with Mother..
    Your patience and blending paid off Amy. As your beautiful images testify.
    What a special moment with that chickadee 🙂
    Such a special place you have there to go to.
    Here parks now being closed so the people will not be tempted over Easter.
    I
    My escape is being on the allotments and in my own garden.
    Watching the birds in my garden gather food for feeding their young.
    The temperature here unusually warm.
    Stay in that zone of yours Amy. It’s the best place to BE my friend.
    Love your way 💕❤️💕

    1. I know when I need a taste of that zone, Sue, for that is when the nerves begin to get frayed, especially nowadays. How shocking that parks are closed where you live and I mean that! Don’t these parks realize that people can and are obeying the social distancing and they are able to do so? Too much has been stripped from everyone! I am so so sorry that the one remaining place people can go is closed. How much more people can take I honestly don’t know. The stress of this situation in of itself will have vast ramifications on health if already not doing so. This is why it is so vitally important for me to stay calm. This too shall pass and what is on the other side is only anyone’s guess. Much love to you!! xo

  8. I’m not sure which gave me the most goosebumps. The magnificent photos of the ducks – all of them – or the imagery (the interior visualization) of you getting into the Zone with the One. It’s an (often) once-in-a-lifetime experience, getting into that Zone. You’ve inspired me to take my time, move more slowly, and try entering that Zone also. Blessings and Peace to you!

    1. Pam, this I can attest as truth. What I experience is “not” a once in a lifetime experience. I experience it all the time when I am out with my cameras. I fall into such bliss, such magic. It’s a learned state of being, yes, for all thoughts stop except for the NOW and all of life around you fades except for the NOW. Letting go of this world to walk into Mother’s World is one of the most powerful and healing aspects of my life. I “think” if you try it won’t happen. Get this “feeling” in your heart that you hold no expectations and you succumb to what Mother gives you. Get lost in the beauty around you and breathe it all in. It’s the art of being still within. You can do it. When Mother acknowledges that you are to be trusted as you show Her respect, the magic begins, and a Sacred Relationship develops. Much peace and many blessings to you! xo

      1. Okay, you have convinced me! Now that the weather is warmer (kinda, almost), I’ll have more opportunity to just sink into Nature as I walk for miles. ❤ I also feel this way when I sit on my front porch (on warmer days) and watch the birds on the bird feeder. Bliss, indeed.
