Window To Friendship ...




“You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you.
You have to go to them sometimes.”
                            ~ A.A. Milne
                                 ~ 1882-1956
                      ~from “Winnie-the-Pooh”
                       ~ published October 14, 1926
Adorable cottontail rabbit and chipmunk eye each other as they meet for what may well be the first time as they scurry for food on a summer evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

“Winnie-the-Pooh” has always been a favorite of mine since childhood, and the words of A.A. Milne sprang to my mind at this sweet peek into wildlife.

Cuddling As The Clouds Roll By ...



"One touch of nature makes 
the whole world kin."
               ~ William Shakespeare
                                ~ 1564-1616

This female mallard brooding her eight ducklings after a dip in the pond is a sweet sight on a spring evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania, as a white feather and reflections of clouds roll by in the water.

Female mallards brood their young regularly, particularly at night, as they easily chill. Brooding also keeps them safe.

The Sweetest Sight ...



"Take a look at what surrounds you.
You'll find natural wonders
at every turn."
                      ~ Author Unknown

My favorite white-tailed deer doe
and her sweet fawn seemingly pose
for mother-daughter portrait
on a summer 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.

Honey Bunny ...



"No act of kindness, 
no matter how small,
is ever wasted."
                  ~ Aesop
                        ~ born 620 B.C., died 564 B.C.

This sweet and adorable cottontail rabbit
is a real honey bunny as it nibbles on some
green grass as a June twilight approaches
at Trexler Memorial Park, 
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

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.

The Fruits Of Spring ...



"In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous."
                                             ~ Aristotle
                                                    ~ 385-322 B.C.

My favorite white-tailed deer doe enjoys an apple
in the early spring, painting a sweet sight as 
sunset draws near in the park.

since 2012, and it's a true joy to me personally and
as a photographer.

Babe In The Woods ...


"In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous."
                                                             ~ Aristotle
                                                                       ~ 385-322 B.C.

There are few sights sweeter than a young and innocent white-spotted fawn, such as
this beautiful white-tailed deer fawn pausing from grazing in
the park on a June evening. I've been blessed to photograph this
fawn's mama doe - who was closeby - and her fawns for more than three years
and it's a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.

Love Flows Sweetly ...



"Sweet spring full of sweet days and roses,
a box where sweets compacted lie."
                                             ~ George Herbert
                                                             ~ 1593-1633

Sweet mallard ducklings swim close to their mama
as a June sunset kisses them with light on the pond
at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Mama And Me ...


"A mother's heart is a patchwork of love."
                                            ~ Author Unknown

Beautiful white-tailed deer doe and her button buck
share a sweet moment in the park a few days after
Christmas. 

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

Anticipation ...


"We can judge the heart of a man
by his treatment of animals."
                             ~ Immanuel Kant
                                              1724-1804

Beautiful white-tailed deer doe anticipates
eating the rest of her apple in the park
just after this season's first significant snowfall
during a Pennsylvania autumn. 

I've been blessed to photograph this doe
and her fawns for more than two and a half years, 
and it's a real joy to me personally and as

What A Wonderful World ...


"Yes, I think to myself,
What a wonderful world."

                                                                ~ 1967

the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania
made me stop and think, "what a wonderful world!"

The Eyes Of Love ...


Beautiful white-tailed deer doe casts a watchful, loving
eye on her fawn. Someday this sweet fawn will be
a proud buck, but on this late summer evening in
the park he was happy grazing with his mother.

I've been blessed to photograph this doe and
her fawns for more than two years, and it's a 
real joy!

Love, Sweet Love ...



"What the world needs now
is love, sweet love ..."
                      ~ "What The World Needs Now Is Love"
                                       ~ Burt Bacharach & Hal David, 1965

The pose of this beautiful white-tailed deer doe and her fawn last
evening in the park reminded me of the wonderful song composed by
Burt Bacharach with lyrics by Hal David in 1965.
