The Wonders of Nature Around Us

We are traveling a little far afield today for our Wonders of Nature post. Randy Parent, who has contributed pictures to our website before, provided us with these gorgeous pictures taken on an African safari a few years ago. He was able to capture beautiful images of lions, hippos, cheetahs, giraffes, rhinoceroses, monkeys and more, all in their natural habitat. He also took stunning landscape photos of the African savannah and the tallest waterfall in the world, Victoria Falls. Some of these pictures look like shots from the Lion King come to life!

The Wonders of Nature Around Us – 1 Week Later

What a difference a week makes! Last week, I posted a lot of beautiful spring pictures. As I was driving into work today, admiring the beautiful snow (but still thinking “Why do we have this much snow in late April?”), I decided to postpone the planned pictures for today. Instead I grabbed the camera, went out into the cold and took many of the same pictures again to truly highlight how stunning nature can truly be – and how quickly she can change. So even as we complain about the snow, we can appreciate the majesty and wonder of nature around us.

The Wonders of Nature

Spring is here! Really here, not “here because the calendar says spring is here.” The sun is shining brighter, the wind is warmer (mostly!), the trees are starting to grow their new leaves, the flowers are starting to bloom. With all this beautiful growth and reawakening happening around us, how could we not feature the beautiful spring all around us? My only trouble was picking which pictures to post!
