“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” ~Roald Dahl
There's magic all around us...we just need to pause for a moment to listen and to look for it. It's there...waiting to be found. It's in the gently falling snow that lands on the bare branches of a tree...it's in the snow as it melts off the branches, with sunlight glistening through the water droplets. The magic sparkles and shines.
Magic can also be found in the buds just starting to open on a cherry tree...with a gentle afternoon sun shining on the blossoms. You simply need to stop to see the beauty...it's there in the soft light.
The magic is always there waiting to be discovered...you just have to believe.

"Each species is a masterpiece, a creation assembled with extreme care and genius." ~Edward O. Wilson
"All things bright and beautiful... All creatures great and small...All things wise and wonderful: The Lord God made them all."
In looking back at some of the photographs that I took in 2012, some of my favorites were of animals. I took them in my yard and on my driveway...at the beach and at the lake....in Disneyworld and at the stables...at the baseball fields and at a farm on the side of a road. No matter where I took them, and no matter how big or small the animal that I photographed, I was amazed by the tiny details...whether it was the color of their fur or the texture of their skin.

“I must have flowers, always, and always.” ~Claude Monet
“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.” ~Iris Murdoch
A look back at some of the wonderful flowers from twenty-twelve....they were one of my favorite things to photograph. Just me and my camera...outdoors in the sunlight...with the blue sky overhead. Nature truly is amazing.
