Republicans and Democrats alike,
virtually all 535 of them, along with
their 30,(XX) support staffers have
been acting irresponsibly far tot)

Be Aware Of The
HY Itll. I. KAVKU
( >no of the ways we can help to develop an awareness of the natural
world around us is to look for reflections in nature. It
is sometimes surprising what you may find and much
of it will be related to the water we have in abundance
Sm our county.
i Waves washing the beach sand make a reflective
- surface lor many species ot birds we find feeding
along the shore. Shells rolling in on the waves also re
^ fleet in the wet sand. Sometimes the gold and reds and
/lavendars ol sunrise or sunset bathe the reflections
with some special color. Sometimes pools of clear wa
.. v?, |. tcr along the beach rcllecl blue sky and white clouds
with a richness hard to overlook.
Calm waters ol canals and the waterway make excellent mirrors for
herons and egrets and pelicans pcrched on a piling or standing by the
shore. Even slight ripples caused by a light breeze can give a special ef
fect to a reflected image.
Once I was attending a nature photography workshop in Florida's
Everglades when 1 began noticing the varieties ol calm rcllcctions around
us. When the lime came to choose an assignment to photograph. 1 chose
rcllcctions, thinking it would be easy to do. During the night a storm
came through and the next day was cool and windy. Gone were the de
tailed rcllcctions on calm water I had planned to photograph. I completed
the assignment, with difficulty, by finding some water-filled stump holes
reflecting palm tans and a secluded lagoon with reflected grasses along
Reflections can give us another perspective on a common subject.
Notice the natural reflections around you and become more aware of what
you sec mirrored in the canals and streams and along the wet beach sand.
