Stop… And Smell The Roses – NZ Sheep

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ25 Southland New Zealand Oct. 2011

Spring always seems to arrive quickly and one morning you wake up and it’s suddenly there. It is a precious time to “stop and smell the roses”. This is when it seems as though Mother Nature shakes off the cobwebs of the winter season and she runs barefoot through the re-discovered grass. Trees begin blooming and sprouting new leaves, flowers poke their sleepy heads out of the ground, and birds chirp excitedly morning, noon and sunset…gathering nesting material to begin a new… Take the time to marvell at the way nature just bursts so brilliantly every year. No matter how many times you experience it, spring is always a welcome sight, it is like a new beginning as everything seems once again bright and beautiful and alive. Even the sun seems to shine more brightly especially after a cleansing rain rain shower.
The daffodils are puting on a show in many of the paddocis in rural New Zealand, and it seems though even the sheep stop grazing for a moment and take time to stop and smell the roses… (In this instance Daffodils)

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
