Wildlife/Nature

It's often said we don't truly appreciate something until we lose it. As the fragility of our natural world becomes more evident, we find ourselves increasingly drawn to places where we can reconnect with the earth, no longer just spectators, but a part of the planet. With little control over the experience, contact with untamed wildlife is a gift, a blessing, and a humbling reminder of how removed from nature our lives have become.
