Yee Haw ! ...



“That it will never come again is what makes life sweet. Dwell in possibility. Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.”
                    ~ Emily Dickinson
                          ~ 1830-1886
A female common merganser duck shows off her wingspan and seems to say “Yee Haw!” as she relishes the beauty of an early September afternoon at Budd M. Jones Municipal Park, Belvidere, New Jersey.

A Bite of Joy ...


"Scatter joy ..."
                 ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
                                       ~ 1803-1882

Beautiful white-tailed deer doe enjoys a shiny red apple
on a waning summer evening in the park.

I've been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns 
for more than three years, and it's a true joy to me
personally and as a photographer.

Chasing The Turtle Drum ...



"Dance along the silver sands and beat the turtle drum,
that youth may last forever, and sorrow never come." 

                                                             ~ "Beat The Turtle Drum"
                                                                       ~ Constance C. Greene
                                                                                            ~ 1994

Simple childhood joy paints the faces of children
anticipating a vehicle fording the Jordan Creek
at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania
on a summer's day.

For more than 50 years kids and kids at heart have enjoyed
driving through the creek - and watching too!
