Spirits of the Forest

New Moon is a perfect time to quest for orbs.

Orbs swirl in concert, Spirits of the Forest.

I can see them moving through the light of the focus beam, impatient to be photographed.

It isn’t often that anyone pays attention to the Spirits of the Forest.

So eager for notice,  the Spirits of the Forest cloud the view screen.

Must be pretty lonely in the woods with no one to take an interest.

Suddenly it’s a party with orbs of Forest Spirits coming from all directions.

And, like many parties, some encounters are more dramatic than others.

It’s just so wonderful to see the Spirits of the Forest dancing together.

About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.

    • Thank you, Debra. These were taken just above the wood pile across from the cabin. The cut off tree on the right is the “squirrel tree” that gets a lot of activity from a very scolding squirrel. Apparently there is other activity as well…
