Today my visit to this beautiful collection of nature photos turned into a real “teaching and learning event” for me. The photos of the deer and the birds, which could only have been taken by a photographer with great patience, taught me the value of bringing patience into the hours I spend in nature. The close-up photos of flowers and leaves that reveal such exquisite beauty in their design taught me the value of bringing focus into my encounters with the natural world. And the entrancing variety of subjects—from the most delicate flower petals to the resting deer to the stunning skyscapes—taught me that, just like a camera, I can zoom in and out in order to fully embrace and appreciate the full range of wonders that nature sets before me.
