I Found A Flower For You

There is nothing sweeter than the innocence and the love of a child. At church while taking pictures for our board, one of our sweet little boys came up to me and said, “I found a flower for you.”

Next thing I knew all the little 4 year old boys were handing me tiny yellow flowers.

Bringing Home A Baby Bumble Bee

I am having a ball with the Macro lens.  WOW!  Just WOW!  I cannot wait to try out the telephoto, too.

The next was a pretty large bumble bee.  I didn’t realize bees were so fast or so hairy.

I found Smurf Village.  Couldn’t find the little blue guys though. They must have been somewhere else.

Dragon Fly, What Big Eyes You Have!

It is interesting once YOU capture something in photo, it becomes yours, and you start noticing things you have not before.  I have noticed the beauty of dragon flies before, even commented on a blog recently about how beautiful their pictures were, but it was not until today when I looked at my pictures that I noticed just how large their eyes are.  Photographers truly do see through different eyes.  I am not in the class with the pros, I will never reach that point, but I am so excited for the eyes that I see through now.

I went to natures inch worm curvy body and the beautiful curves of the magnolia pedals. I also borrowed a beautiful curves my husband took of copper wire, and then the contrast of the rusty curves of the chains.

Around the Wildflower Garden Today…

It just amazes me daily the things I am starting to see anew.  From the sand on the ground, to the true beauty of flowers.  I have always thought flowers were nice, but never been one to notice the shapes of petals or drops of rain on them, or tiny creatures in their habitat.  I am so grateful for this photographic journey of healing and awakening to the world around me.  These pictures all come from Mother’s gardening.  I can see why she finds peace when working around it.
