Freestyle skateboarder Ellen O’Neal aims high in this pic from 1976. The knee pads she’s wearing aren’t just for fun. Dreams don’t work unless you do!

Close up and personal

Hummingbirds are some of my favorite creatures. No bigger than a ping-pong ball and no heavier than a nickel, they are fearless at confronting beings hundreds of times greater in size. I’ve put up a feeder by my window in order to watch their aerial antics, but the tiny fliers always seem too quick and too far away to get a really good look.

Photographer Chris Morgan has captured the iridescent plumage of this teensy terror in all its glory. Each intricate feather is smaller than a caraway seed but packs a colorful punch!

Happy Independence Day!

Some Fourth of July revelers consider fireworks too noisy, and sometimes dogs become so disturbed by the  blasts that they need a chill pill.

I love these colorful explosions in the sky. Photographers Nick Pacione and David Johnson love them too.

Nick Pacione uses a special technique that changes focus during the exposure of his photographs to capture the flash in time in a way our eyes could never see.

David Johnson uses a special focus technique of his own to show pyrotechnic displays in a whole new light.

Whether in the sky or in a photograph, may fireworks light up your Fourth of July this year!

Nature’s paintbrush

Posted: June 1st, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Eucalyptus deglupta, or rainbow eucalyptus, produces bark so colorful you’d think it was watered with paint.

This evergreen tree is native to moist, humid, tropical forested areas in New Guinea, Indonesia, and the Philippine Islands. It is the only eucalyptus tree that is indigenous to the Northern Hemisphere.

The beauty and mystery of Nature shines in this magical plant!
