Spring Photography, the power to heal, and Sanderling…

One of the things I enjoy most about blogging is the feedback I receive from viewers, from around the world, and of course locally. This morning, from fellow blogger, Earth Is Ascending, I was treated to an opportunity to review the book Quantum-Touch by Richard Gordon. The subheading in this book is The Power to Heal. There on the right column was a link to the free online read of the material.

If never been exposed to this subject, it is only a matter of discovering techniques that can open new doors.

One of our first new doors was the Sylva Mind Control course. Learning that our brainwaves resonate at 20 cycles and that we could slow them down to 10 cycles was our first eye opener. After that, other information just became easier to grasp.

From the book, “The ability to work as a healer is simply a gift. It is a gift within that we need only discover. This ability is ours at birth. It comes as standard equipment on all humans – hardwired into the system.”

On another note…

An admission, on my part:

Pelican the “Oh” of flight
Pelican the “Oh” of flight

The pelican in flight in the prior blog was selected from four possible images for it’s positive posture, as it flew overhead. What I hadn’t realized, at the time, as the shutter was making 11 images a second, was the reason for the happy face on the pelican. When viewed at 100% to check for sharpness, one can plainly see that it is also releaving itself at the same time. Watch out below!!!

While there, sitting on the sand, I waited for each Sanderling to scurry along in front of me. Easy pickings as opposed to trying to chase them down. I was reminded of  what National Geo photographer Frans Lanting said about shooting wildlife. “Learn their behavior first,” he said, “then you’ll be in  a position to anticipate their activity.” His remarks related to his time studying behavior for an article was about this very species, Sanderlings. That was during a gathering at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute, where they do important work to the support the natural world. A small group met later after the event and became the future North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA).

About the Sanderling, I did, in fact, experience very interesting behavior.

I have no idea, at this writing, about the lumps of what appears to be sand globs on the bill of the bird.

I do know they are very migratory and this was the time for breeding. Summers are spent in the Artic Greenland and winters find them in warmer South America.

Always moving, there’s more to learn about this species.
