  1. Beautiful shots! Completely worth the effort to greet the morning that early! I find it truly rewarding to take the time to observe all the wildlife in their own world and being completely oblivious to our Human troubles and worries in this strange time we are going through. The LIFE they represent is contagious and uplifting. Thank you for sharing this visual injection of joy.
