Tender In The Grass ...



“There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.”
                            ~ George Sand
                         ~ pseudonym of 
                Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin,
                   French novelist & memoirist
                             ~ 1804-1876

It doesn’t get sweeter than this, seeing a beautiful white-tailed deer fawn tenderly nuzzling its mama doe on a gorgeous July evening in the park – a honey of a summer sight!

Majestic In The High Grass ...


"Be inspired by your journeys traveled,
and the ones yet to come."
                                ~ Sam Clark

Beautiful seven-point white-tailed deer buck
strikes a majestic pose while passing through 
the park as sunset sinks into dusk on a late
September evening.

Peace On The Hillside ...



"There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow
No trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me."

                     ~ "Peace In The Valley"
                   ~ Written by Thomas A. Dorsey
                                        ~ 1937
              ~ Recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                        ~ 1957 


Bright wild yellow mustard brushes a soft peace on a sun-filled May afternoon on a hillside of the Central Range of the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, the only sounds the rustling of the spring breeze and the coo of a mourning dove. Perfect.

The color yellow is often associated with peace and happiness.

To me, this scene illustrates the still and serene beauty of God’s creation painted in that beautiful Gospel hymn “Peace in the Valley,” recorded by the great Elvis Presley in 1957.

Sweetness In The Grass ...



"Listen easy, you can hear God calling
Walking barefoot by the stream ...
And the time will be our time
And the grass won't pay no mind ...
The moment we're living is now
Now now now now now now now ...
And the time will be our time
And the grass won't pay no mind
No the grass won't pay no mind."

       ~"And The Grass Won't Pay No Mind"
            ~ Words & Music by Neil Diamond
           ~ Recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                         ~ 1969   

And the grass won't pay no mind
as these adorable Canadian Geese goslings
paint a picture of sweetness in the grass
in the light of a May sunset at
Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

A Little Foxy ...


"And I'll love the sound of the wind in the wheat ..."
                                    ~ "The Little Prince"

Autumn breezes through the high grass frame
beautiful red fox who seems quite content just
after a November sunset at Trexler Memorial Park, 
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

I Will Remember You ...

"I will remember you
will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories." 
                       ~ Sarah McLaughlin, 1995

This dandelion puff on a May evening 
at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania
brought to mind that wonderful song.

How Sweet It Is ...


Beautiful white-tailed deer doe looks blissful
grazing on a May evening in the park. I've been blessed to
photograph her and her fawns for two years, always wonderful 
to see. It's an amazing feeling to me when she sees me,
recognizes me and walks over like an old friend!

Carpe Diem!


Carpe Diem!

Beautiful white-tailed deer doe seems to seize the day
as she enthusiastically crunches on an apple
in the park on an April evening.
