A sure and very welcome sign of spring: an American robin. I watched it hop around my lawn looking for worms, and when it flew onto my fence, I took the picture. After I downloaded it onto my computer, I noticed that it only has one leg. A wonderful example of strength under adversity!

5. Wicklow County Bray, Ireland
I took this is a picture in 2009 of my favorite quiet spot in the entire world. It's a picnic bench overlooking the ocean in Wicklow County Bray in Ireland. I can not imagine a more healing or divine inspiring place to be. Whenever I'm sad, I close my eyes and transport myself there.

You can definitely breathe here! You can slow down and enjoy many wonders of nature, from the breathtaking waterfall to the magnificent trees to the raccoon family living behind the lodge. A place to escape the rat race and enjoy the many wonders of nature.

We looked at this view in front of our beach house for the past two years. The beauty is breathtaking. It looks and feels like a paradise. But paradise is also where the heart is, and that can simply be where ever you may be.

Lotus flowers are so beautiful. This picture was made by holding the camera over a lotus plant. I couldn't really see what I was doing, but the result made me very happy. The colors are magnificent.

The flight of the bald eagle is so beautiful and so spirited. It humbles the heart and soul and gives me great respect for the beauty of nature.

I took this picture of the sunset right outside my window. We live in a 100-year-old farmhouse that sits on 400-plus acres of prime farmland in Madison County, Ohio, (the largest agricultural county in Ohio) where the sky is like a constant major motion picture. Sun up to sun down, the sky tells different story every day.

This is the sun setting behind the mountains with such beautiful colors of red and purple and blues and pinks and yellows. They make you just want to pause at that moment, take a deep breath and soak in all those rays of color. I felt very calm and at peace while taking this photo.

I call this "Diamonds Are Forever." Amazing beauty is all around us at every moment. Simple morning dew upon canna leaves facing the morning sunlight are truly jewels to behold. Also a nice place to have your morning java.

While on our honeymoon in September 2009 on Sanibel Island, Florida, my husband and I decided to explore a nearby nature walk. We were pleasantly surprised to see many beautiful butterflies all around us. I was able to capture this gorgeous monarch just as she landed.
