I reached out this week to bird photographers and invited them to join a virtual party I called "World Bird Wednesday."
So mightily impressed am I with online phenomena such as Skywatch Friday and Weekend Reflections that I thought I would like to contribute to a "Bird Photography" meme. Bird photography is a new craze for me brought on by the fact I live in a nature preserve and I recently bought a DSLR camera. I perused the web and alas, I could find no such meme. "So maybe," I thought," I should start one." Understand that 99.9% of the time these kind of thoughts pass in and out of my mind very quickly. But this time I acted and God help us the world has a new meme!
The reaction to my random invitations to participate in the inaugural World Bird Wednesday was mind blowing. Twenty high powered nature photographers from four continents contributed to this initial installment! People speaking to people across the globe without political borders and the limitation of time and space appeals to a person of my ilk. I am so humbled to be apart of, and thankful for this joyous event.
How do you blow your mind? Trust the quiet voice and act! Who knew?
