The inquisitive mind

FullSizeRender.jpg

This grey catbirds looks so curious. She reminds of the curiosity of a young child. When we are young, we are so open to new ideas, and change. As we get older, we tend to be less willing to change .. to has the ask questions that make us uncomfortable. Curiosity expands the mind!

I listened to the Akimbo podcast by Seth Godin. In a recent eposide, Seth takes about education. He specifically discussed issues with our education system in the US. I’m not going to dive into details, but recommend you listen to this when you have time. Here is the link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/akimbo-a-podcast-from-seth-godin/id1345042626?mt=2

What about you and me? I believe that individuals can cultivate a curious mind. This is not just for the young! Even someone in their ‘gold years’ can do things to help develop curiousity. Try do eat different foods, read broad opinions, listen to all kinds of people and ideas. This does not mean you will agree with everyone your read or hear, but it will broaden your base.

Have a great day!

Sitting pretty

This Blue Jay photo goes back about 6 weeks. I have so many photos that I have not shared here yet. I almost missed this this shot.

Just thinking back ..

FullSizeRender.jpg

I shot this photo a couple weeks ago and I forgot to post it. I had the wrong lens on my camera for the photograph, so even at 200mm, she was too far away. I still love the image. The depth of field makes the background appear confused and noisy, while main image is focus. I can’t make out the second bird, and I am guessing I did not even see him.

Fall Swans

We were really surprised to find these two Swans at Kiser Lake yesterday. They are so graceful. I assume they are migrating and this was just a temporary stop.

We went there to photograph the foliage. It was not as good as I expect, but the Swans made up for the lack of bright colors. There are more photos and some drone footage in the video below. Enjoy.

Woodpecker focus

Teresa captures this photo of these two woodpeckers earlier this week. They ignored her and stayed focus on the work at hand. I guess that’s good focus. There are days I needed that kind of focus!
