Pure Nature in June

Reconnecting with God, Mother Nature, and the Universe

June 12, 2021

While many find God in the comfort of the church

I reconnect with my creator in the outdoors hanging out with animals of his kingdom.

Our animals, wildlife, and livestock, represent an integrated part of our souls. Living in the mountains of Wallowa County, Oregon, summers are accompanied by blistering temperatures in August and freezing temperatures into the negative 20s during winter.

Nobility, courage and strength: Our retired Norwegian Fjord brood mare Katja and her best friend and retired ranch horse Reno living life as good as it gets in their early and late 20s at Highview Angus Ranch.

The Redwinged Blackbird

is a passerine bird of the family Icteridae found in most of North America and much of Central America.
This beautiful specimen calls our ranch his backyard. This same little bird followed me for more than a mile while I was slowly driving into the pastures and fields with my four wheeler to find places where I can sit quietly waiting for the right moments to record the wonders of Nature.

Scientific name: Agelaius phoeniceus

The Moth and the Bee

in my little front yard paradise getting their evening feed of my wild onions. To attract these incredible little wonders of the world just plant the food they enjoy and relax.
Not one bee has stung me while getting as close as possible with my macro. I stay quiet while pushing down on the shutter inhaling the smell of flora and fauna all around me. They don’t seem to mind at all 🙂

Sir Henry and Little Bear

waiting patiently for my return to receive their evening meal. Both of them are what we call “easy keeper” an oxymoron in itself. 
Easy keepers are prone to obesity that can lead to what human medicine calls “diabetics”.
In horses this condition can be deadly since it can manifest itself as severe lameness aka laminitis. Without a healthy hoof there is not healthy horse.
Sir Henry, a Norwegian Fjord gelding, and Little Bear, a Quarter Horse mare, are therefore kept in an environment that is closer to a desert plain than a lush green pasture. Both receive hay two to three times per day to supplement their nutrient requirements.
