Where’s the Crowd?


Alone in nature …never… nothing is ever alone in nature. But where are this yellowlegs friends?

The day comes to an end at the Montezuma Nature Preserve. It is quiet, the water still, the sun sits low in the sky. A perfect end to the day. The birds, all but a remaining few have settled in for the evening.


It makes me want to grab a fishing pole and cast the line. Maybe I would have more luck than our yellowlegs. Fish are still up, right?

      Thank you Marco. I am your newest fan. I have been blogging for quite awhile and have seen your robin before, but never clicked to find out where I could find your blog. Today I thought to and was so amazed at your work. My other blog at http://gardenwalkgardentalk.com/ was getting too off focus with nature photography and all my bird photos, so I thought to start out fresh and see where this goes. It made me check out other nature and wildlife photographers too. Thank you for the kind words and dropping in here at NAWPs. You will see me again as I subscribed. I don’t subscribe often because GWGT is a very busy blog, but I certainly don’t want to miss your posts.

      • Hee hee … thank you indeed, just had a quick look at the link to Garden walk Garden talk and after only a quick look I’m very impressed with both the photography and the content, well my plans tonight were to process some pictures for a new post but looks like I’ll be spending some time going through your site and if GWGT is anything to go by then your new site “Nature and Wildlife Pics” will be something very special indeed, I’ve also subscribed and will most defiantly look forward to your next post 🙂

  4. great images, thanks for commenting on my blog and I am glad I found yours!

  5. I love your images of this bird…really top notch Donna!!

  6. Donna, I can’t see how to subscribe.

  7. Don’t forget to add the widget to follow by email on this one. Very neat blog. I love both of your blogs, but I’m a nature guy. Lol. Thank you!!!

      I had so much trouble setting up this site for some reason. Things did not “stick” and other things I could not get to go away. Well, finally it is starting to settle in. The browser is the problem and I should use Firefox, but using that for GWGT, I don’t want any login issues so I am staying clear. I am glad you like my nature stuff. It was getting tough combining it with gardening. Not all see the connection, like in the way nature designs to take clues in their own garden design.

    Fantastic light and capture of this yellow legs.

  9. “Alone in nature …never… nothing is ever alone in nature.”
    A thought I’m mulling over…never thought of nature in that way before…

      It really is true when you think of it. Below our feet is virtual cites of insect and soil life, the air constantly a buzz or filled with high flying birds. We may look out over a landscape and not see animals, but lots of stuff is around us – plant life included.

    Great progression of movements..
    I also found that the reflections on the water look almost as real as the original ones…
    Lovely work, Donna. Best regards, Aquileana 😛
