Wheelchair stroll today

After a night of nightmares and waking up on pain…so much…physical illness and PTSD together…just so wrong…SO I did what I do and I got up and got in my wheelchair and went out to take photos around the neighborhood. I hope you enjoy them! It will never get old that I go around the same block and see new discoveries every time. The distraction to something good for my mind is really really good for me. The hawk was so patient. I asked him if he could hang out a LITTLE longer so I could try and find good lighting while sitting in my wheelchair and try and balance my camera. And he did. I moved all around him and then he would adjust himself in a different position. The blue jay was just above him not happy he was there. It was odd lighting because the sun was behind me but it was about to rain so overcast. I’m always thrilled when at least some of my photos come out! I never look until I get home and download them.

Their was so much orange and red today, everywhere!

Photographs around my neighborhood

I took these photos around my neighborhood in my wheelchair on walks with my husband. It has been raining in Florida every day for a month so our little adventures out are short and inbetween rain bursts but still so well worth it if I catch one raindrop on a flower or a beautiful bird.

The hawk was on the corner of our house last night as we pulled into the driveway from our walk. The hawks nest is across the road in our neighbor’s front yard. The babies now have coloring to them and are losing their fluffy downy white heads.

The sandhill cranes were walking on the edge of the prairie behind our house. Their are two pairs out there now that are the Florida sandhill cranes. They stay year round. The other sandhill cranes are only here in the winter.

The woodpeckers live in our backyard and I enjoy them every moment I see them even if it’s the thousandth time!
