Montana Spring


Color
the world is dressed in color


and light


color and magical light

I wish I could photograph the scents of the forest for you:
thick, sweet, spirit altering 
mix of 
trees flowers earth


some plants are fruiting
some are just beginning to rise through the earth


I sat close to this owl at sunset the other night
until it spotted it's meal and dove into the grassy meadow


this scene is So Montana!

  7. Such beauty and wonderment in all your captures, from that first unusual plant, the gorgeous structure of the underside of that leaf and the unfurling fern, calming waters with lily pads and the very alert owl looking for its next meal. I can even hear the clip-clop of the horses' hooves as they pass by! Such lovely scenes to nourish my love of nature!

  18. Each plant looks luminous and looks like singing the praises of spring with all its vitality and beauty. I feel like that I can smell the mountain air, mixture of soil, greens, flowers’ scent, and the likes, by your words and images. The owl is so handsome. Thank you, Tammie, for this glimpse into one glorious day of Montana.

  25. I love the unfurling fern - and the owl! I just finished Night of the Grizzles, an old (late 60's) book about Glacier and marauding Grizzlies. So good - I stayed up after Midnight to finish! Do you ever see Grizzlies in your territory or just Black Bears?

  26. Wonderful photos. The colour and clarity is so good. I have been photographing my ferns but they are nowhere as clear as yours. The owl was magical
