Day 2695: Nature

Since my nature is to observe nature (including human nature), it’s natural that I would write posts with nature in the title. However, this is only my fifth post out of two thousand seven hundred and thirty-one to use the word “nature” (see the other ones here, herehere, and here) and the first one where “nature” stands alone.

Is it your nature to guess why I chose the title “nature”after looking at my photos from yesterday?

Is it your nature to choose your favorite photos of all of those?  My nature is that it’s sometimes difficult to choose, but this one — with its gentleness, kindness, love, and self control  —  appeals most to my nature:

When I wasn’t out & about observing human nature & nature, I watched the beautiful Chinese animated film Big Fish & Begonia, which is about nature, human nature, and the call of the ocean.

It is my nature to include the official trailer for Big Fish & Begonia:

It is also my nature to collect hearts & thank you’s, so here is the natural end to today’s post:

  1. Nature is bursting out around us, Ann, and for that I am glad.
    I also appreciate those who are treating social distancing as if it were second-nature. Because of those who are already flocking back to old, now-dangerous ways, I fear more struggles.

    Great photos! I like the curled up cat… Save those covid 19 photos. They could be worth something later.

  3. You’re living in tune with nature, my dear friend. ʚɞ(ू•ᴗ•ू❁)

  4. I am so glad that you moved near the ocean before the pandemic. You are managing some lovely nature walks. So glad to see Oscar and Harley being true to their natures, too, and napping in the middle of the day.

  5. I can never choose a favourite, but I can say I like the land-and seascapes best.

    • It is also my nature to have difficulty choosing favorites, my friend, so thank you for saying what you like best.

  6. It is in your nature to have a big heart! (and a somewhat special one at that!)

    Nature has its own graceful beauty. I like the scenrey of the seaside and green grass. What do you call the tall tan grass that looks like wheat?

    • Thank you for the gracefulness of your comment. I call it marsh grass, but I don’t know if that’s the right term.

  8. Getting out in nature, I find, is very helpful, and a good way to stay healthy. I appreciate the healthcare workers and don’t want to create any extra work for them. I do have my weaknesses, though.

  9. I like nature, but I like to sleep in a warm comfy bed just the thought of sleeping out in nature gives me the creeps

  10. You may have chosen the kingdom of nature, but Harley continues to reign in it!

  11. It’s in your nature to give us beautiful pictures of nature. And I like that one with the dog coming out of the house, too. But I really like those pictures of what look like wetlands, with lovely grasses…

  12. and how lovely to be so near to such lovely nature, and it is in my nature to love your choice of that little shrine and to say that I am very excited to see big fish and begonia.

  13. great captures! i’m glad you were able to move somewhere near the ocean before the pandemic and enjoy the beauty of nature during the lockdown. thanks for sharing💞
