Walking With Nature By The Bay



IMG_6339 Young Red Winged Black Bird

Red Winged Black Bird Singing His Summer Song

High above me in this tree.

One little Goldfinch sitting in a tree

Looking as pretty as can be.

As He  looks down

I wonder what do you see

besides me,

perched way up in that tree?

 IMG_6392 Yellow Goldfinch

 Seems He is following me,  posed for another picture

I have wanted to capture one of these for a very long time. And today he flew into my path.

I prayed God would Bless me and He did.

I believe God can and does use His Creation to Bless those who’s heart is open to see and hear, not only creation, but the Creator Himself.





IMG_6300 Lace

 Queen Anne’s Lace is one of my favorite Wildflowers

Dainty and oh so Pretty is she.

I like how she stands out in her surroundings.





IMG_6471 Butterfly Unknown

What a pleasant surprise as this Beautiful Butterfly

Fluttered by me and Landed long enough

for me to take this photo.

If anyone knows the name of this Butterfly please let me know.





IMG_6291Water Lilly

He leads me beside still waters

He restores my soul. 

Words from Psalm 23.

That is what came to mind as I looked into the pond and saw this Water Lilly, and her reflection in the still waters.

Maybe you look at this photo and see something totally different , and that is fine too.

I hope that by looking at these photos , and reading this blog, you will be Blessed .

Hope to find you all well and enjoying the seasons of life where ever you may dwell.  May you see the Beauty beyond whatever circumstances you may face in this life. 

May God reveal Himself to you as you seek Him, and Bless You beyond measure.

Sincerely Dianne :)

P.S If you click on each photo you will be able to see a bigger photo.

  1. Now I know where the goldfinches go when they pass thru here.

    1. Thank you John. I don't get to see the yellow finches very often and I was very happy to see this one. I believe we have them here. I just don't come across them too often.

  2. Beautiful words and photos. Blessings to you Dianne.


  3. Gorgeous words, Gorgeous photos. I love the Queen Anns Lace. One of my Moms favs.
    Lovely Dianne.
    Hugs from the Beautiful West.

  4. I am blessed when i visit your blog. The pictures are so lovely and your words speak peace.

    1. Thank you Ruth. That is so nice to hear. :) I am very Blessed when I visit your blog also. Love your photos and your thoughts of the day.

  5. G'Day Dianne, Wow, I just left a comment on your previous blog post yesterday. Did you get to read it? Please email me and let me know how you, Steve and your mum are doing. And I love to know how the grand babies are doing! Your photographs are indeed beautiful moments captured, and I'm so pleased you shared those with us. The photos are so crisp and rich with colour. You're a born natural photographer!!! Some people crop them, adjust the colours and all sorts of things (which is totally fine) but I think what makes yours stand out from the rest is your skill to use natural light producing show stopper images. Beauty as it is. I love the Red Winged Blackbird singing a song, only wish I could hear it too :) Sending love and blessing to you dear friend. With love and care from Kerrie. xoxo

    1. Kerrie, Thank you for your messages. In short we are doing okay, and will write soon. I am sorry I haven't got back to you. It is late and I need sleep. Love and Care :)

  6. Hi Dianne,

    I am blessed and will be back later, to view again, when I have more time

    Hugs Nita

  7. I really do love red winged black birds and golden finches! I remember thinking they were canaries when I was a little boy and my grand father who was an avid birdwatcher would just smile at me. I still am in shock that it's August already. It cooled down a lot here but very little rain still. I can feel a touch of fall....way out there yet but still I can feel it.

  8. I have noticed 2 pairs of Goldfinches in my garden , different to yours Dianne , they have a red patch under wing. Lots of Sparrows which love a dry mud bath. Your post fills me with joy. Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs Sheila xx

  9. Thamk you every one. The time is going way too fast for me. :) Hope you are enjoying your summer

  10. Looks like God blessed you on this nature walk for sure. I love your little poem as well. Those little Goldfinches can be so fleeting and hard to get a photo of. I am glad nature is revealing so many precious moments to you. Have a wonderful week. Hugs Carrie

  11. You are so talented Dianne! Your lovely words and photos are so uplifting. I am blessed and I can see here a couple of the ways God has blessed you. Have a beautiful week...

  12. I love red winged blackbirds...especially the sound they make. That beautiful butterfly is a black swallowtail.

  13. Stunning photos Dianne, nothing more lovely than going for nature walks (with camera in hand). Wow that butterfly has awesome colors, I wish I could help you but I don't know the name...

    Hope all is well. : )
