This one left me speechless (which doesn't happen very often!) As another commenter said, "I've never seen a photo from heaven before!"

Like Father, Like Son

Like Father, Like Son, originally uploaded by BOND159.

Happy Father's Day everyone! I hope that you all enjoyed spending time with your family today if you had the opportunity. I searched the A Big Fave pool for fathers and found some wonderful results, but this one made me smile. So simple but so beautiful and sweet!

Into the field of dreams ...

Into the field of dreams ..., originally uploaded by Ian G7KXV.

Maybe it's because I'm re-reading the Harry Potter series for the millionth time this summer, but something about this photo struck me as magical. Beautiful, dreamy, ethereal, I feel like this could be a home for humans or other creatures that only live in our imaginations.

Mom Will Be Back Soon!

I found this photo in one of my contacts' photo stream, I felt this photo speaks the true meaning of spring, and even today graduation for many students around the country. It reminds me of newness of life and the challenges we will always face in our journeys. Many congratulations to the graduating class of '07. And Happy summer to all!!!

Lamentations of a Forest

Lamentations of a Forest, originally uploaded by DrewMyers.

Said best by Drew Myers:

This white oak once stood shoulder to shoulder with dozens of others in the forest by the Limberlost Trail in Shenandoah National Park. Now it stands alone. It's neighbors have been weakened and killed by the Gypsy Moth, a species accidentally introduced by man which is killing the oaks in Shenandoah National Park. This tree too will likely succumb to the invader as its leaves are eaten away by the gypsy moth larvae. Slowly this tree with be starved of nutrients and will succumb as it's neighbors have. The Limberlost Trail area is a sad example of the ways in which humans are changing the environment in ways we can not predict. The giant Hemlocks that once also stood in this area are already gone, killed by the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid, a species also introduced - you guessed it - by us.
