Winter's Bluebird ...



“The bluebird carries the sky on its back.”
               ~ Henry David Thoreau
                         ~ 1817-1862
A beautiful male Eastern Bluebird enjoys a rare warm February day along the Delaware and Lehigh Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap.
  
In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, the Lehigh Gap in Slatington, Pennsylvania, is a crossroads where the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s trails connect two historic trails – the Appalachian Trail and the D&L Trail. 

The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

Taking A Bite Out Of Winter ...



“It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”
                    ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder
                              ~ 1867-1957
My favorite white-tailed deer doe takes a bite out of winter as she enjoys eating an apple on a February evening in the park.

I’ve been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns since 2012, and it’s a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.

Just Me And My Apple ...




“One touch of nature 
            makes the whole world kin.”
             ~ William Shakespeare
                         ~ 1564-1616
My favorite white-tailed deer doe pauses from eating her apple in the snow before happily finishing it on a winter’s evening in the park.

I’ve been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns since 2012, and it’s a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.
