Planet earth is the only planet, known to date, that presently supports life of many varieties. The word 'nature,' comes from the Latin word, 'natura,' meaning 'birth,' and we use this word almost exclusively to refer to earth's geology and wildlife.
In everyday conversations we often personify nature and its meaning, rightly therefore, as being female, as in Mother Nature renewing life. Our often descriptive reference to nature as 'Mother Nature,' therefore must also be considered as the very source and guiding force of our belief that our small planet earth and the life contained thereon, originate from a divine creator.
Regrettably because of Ireland's current financial situation, many of us, today, are forced to go about our daily lives with thoughts clearly focused on basic day to day survival and Mother Nature is being placed much further down the line, on our daily list of priorities.
However, it takes just one skilled photographer, linked to an area of wetland habitat, latter supported by a group of forward thinking benefactors, who working together remind us of the true beauty that Mother Nature has to offer each and every one of us. The wetland habitat is Cabragh Wetlands, Thurles and the skilled photographer is Eamon Brennan, himself a native of Thurles, Co Tipperary.
