A little bit of nature and fun

I went for a stroll, and arrived near a spring with cold, crystal fresh water, at the base of a mountain. While I was quenching my thirst, I noticed a stork changing leg positions on an abandoned pole.
I took the camera and took a few shots. In on of them, the stork was looking at me:

Just like in a real fashion presentation, its feet are not too comfortable it seems!
After that, I turned my eyes to the ground and took a few pictures with wet leaves and grass. I always love how pure the water drops look when seen up close.

It's boring to sit in the same place and try to take photos of the same subjects. So I left the place and went at the river, taking there some pictures:

Summer feel

I had fun taking some splashing water photos. Would be awesome to make some macro with the water still in its vertical motion, but it's really hard.

When I came back, along the river bank, I took a photo of some nut tree leaves too. Yeah, it's heavily edited to make it look a bit better:

Going even further, I almost stepped on an earth warm crossing the path. I lowered myself at ground level and took a macro shot of it.
As it turns out, something quite gross was happening: 2 warms were sucking nutrients from the poor earth worm.

I thought it'd be nice to film its odd movements. All this time, until I arrived home, I thought those pulsating things were only a leaf moving under the pulsating skin.

Well, have a fun day guys!
