Most of the time that I spend out in the field I am focused on birds or wildlife but there are times when other things catch my eye and I can’t resist taking images. Back in March of 2009 I was wandering around Fort De Soto County Park’s north beach lagoon when a huge bubble on the water caught my eye. It might not look like it in this image but the bubble was over two feet in diameter.
The creator of the bubbles was having what seemed to be a great time and I remember thinking that he seemed like a child in an adult body. Which I think is great because it means the joy of living hasn’t left him and he allows playfulness to reign. It is hard to see in this image but the woman sitting on the chair behind the bubble has a smile on her lips and it seemed like she was enjoying the show.
I loved that both of these people were wearing tie-dyed shirts that echoed the spectrum of visible colors in the bubbles and the reflections on the water.
Sure, these images don’t show birds or wildlife but they do show nature.
Life is good.
