There are many ways to enjoy nature. You might be simply awed by the beauty of scenery or the colors, shapes, interactions or behaviors of plants and animals. Or you might choose to take a more analytical look at natural events. These photos represent a variety of situations I have recently encountered in my daily enjoyment of nature in Charlotte and Sarasota Counties. So go out into nature daily and enjoy it for its beauty and be awed by the simply astonishing miracle of the complexity and mystery of it all.
