My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped.
I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
Thank you, Sherry! 😀
Many thanks, Babsje! 😉
Hard to believe that they will grow into beautiful birds. Ah, the wonders of Nature.
Yes, Francis, they sure don’t look anything like the adults now! Nature is amazing! 😁
Colors are so vivid – great photo capture! They’ll never know (nor would they care) that their fresh selves are so startling to others. Amazing how very quickly transformation begins – I’ve never been close to an emergence from the egg. Wonderful to stare here.
Yes, thanks, Jazz! On the remaining egg, there are two pip marks (i.e., egg smashes from the inside-out). Soon there will be three! 😁
Amazing to see this Tom – such a wondrous miracle of life and I’ve seen hatchlings before, but not this young. A friend of mine had a robin’s nest on her deck and took a photo of the nest and eggs once daily to document their growth. They don’t even have a wisp of feather on their heads. Hard to believe that a robin fledges 14 days post- hatching. This is a great shot!
Thanks, Linda! Did you notice the two pip marks on the remaining egg? The third bird is cracking his/her way out from the inside! 😁🤩
Yes, I did see that Tom – I was amazed seeing that and I sent that blog post to two fellow bloggers … one who home schools her two kids and the other who was amazed like me about the gosling eggs in my Mother’s Day post and wondered if maybe the Mama Goose had her head close to the eggs thinking she heard cracking/hatching.
Birds do watch their eggs closely and some assist with hatching.
This was an incredible photo Tom; that why I share the blog post link with a few other nature lovers. I’ve never seen hatchlings and eggs up that close. People fling the phrase “bird brain” around erronously.
Elegant Picture 🌷❣
Thank you for sharing 😊
Amazing and wonderful picture Tom! So beautiful
A precious moment captured. It is sad when even those whose eyes are wide open cannot see.
