Art In Nature #8.

Hi and welcome to our Art in Nature series! I’m finally getting used to my regular weekly posting of this series and next week we will be adding some different things to it just for some variety, but still staying with the art in nature aspect of these posts. I hope you will enjoy the new additions.

I normally only do the art in nature posts during the winter months, but I may keep it going all through the summer this year as well. I really enjoy looking for little oddities that we normally would not pay any attention to, so that we can all see the incredible beauty that abounds all around us.

And hopefully we can then apply this idea to our lives in general, so that instead of seeing all the negative things around us, we can also see all the positive things. And some of these things that we might consider a negative aspect, can really show forth a lot of beauty. Like dead grass, or leaves. Dried flowers, perhaps just a rock, some ripples on the water, even a dead branch or tree can have real beauty and produce some wonderful art in nature.

Even insects can be some incredible art in nature, even though not many people like insects too much. But given the right time, the right location and they can be incredible art in nature. So I hope you enjoy today’s selections, have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. I agree, you should consider doing this in the summer as well. It is so wonderful to see the beauty in everything around us. The butterfly blends in, probably to hide from predators, but really brings out the beauty of that dried tansy. I love the close up on the grass gone to seed! Thanks! 😁

    • Thank you Beverly! Nice to get a confirmation about that! I’m hoping my idea works out so I can make some new additions to this as well. Will have to wait and see about that though. I’m hoping I can get better at those close ups too.πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸ“·


      • You’re welcome Steve! That would be great, hope it works out. Yes, I am sure you will get better at the close ups. They are really good now, much better than the ones I take for the Outreach publication I do. My pics mainly capture people. I am always challenged to get good close up pics to capture powerful expressions. I am sure you will get better. πŸ˜πŸ“·

      • Taking good pics of people is hard. I gave up on that one. Of course people seldom cooperated so that didn’t help.πŸ™„ Animals and plants are much easier to work with!πŸ˜ƒ The key is practice, with more practice, then add in some practice after that!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή Have a great day Beverly!πŸ˜πŸŒžπŸ“·


      • Yes, it is very hard. You would not believe how many pictures I have to take to get one good shot. πŸ˜‚. Yes, practice, practice, practice….πŸ˜‚πŸ“·πŸ“ΈThanks Steve! 😁
