Harmony in Nature
The photo prompt this week from the Daily Post is Harmony. There are so many things that can be in harmony. Music of course comes to mind, but I think the harmony found in nature is the most pure. It’s the way things work in nature, one species helping another, a particular plant for a certain animal. It’s all a harmonious balance.
When I was pondering what photos to use for today’s post, I thought of these images I took this past year in Wyoming and Montana. You guys may remember these too.
This image of the bear looking under rocks was the first one I thought of. This photo was taken at the Wolf and grizzly center in West Yellowstone, Mt. What you can’t see here, is the ravens that were waiting for the bears to lift the rocks so they could hopefully swoop in and steal some food.
This image, and what we observed there prompted Al to create this sculpture, Harmony and Strength. We got to see Al’s two new sculptures after being bronzed for the first time last week.
This other photo shows the harmony between the bison, and the little birds that eat the bugs out of their fur. I imagine they are pretty grateful to the birds to not have bugs biting them all the time. And the birds get an easy meal.
The Dogwood 52 week challenge this week was portrait- environmental. Show someone in their natural environment like work, or a hobby.
This is our great friend Al. He is 84 and still makes wood bows and arrows. We have been shooting with his archery equipment for about 5 years now. He makes great stuff! And as you can probably guess, he is quite the character. He is a wonderful, fun, and very talented person.
