Such a Beauty, and Not As Earrings

Seeing the beauty of these lizards through the eyes of an adult, I almost feel guilty for wearing them as earrings as a child. I guess they thought they were attacking the giant as they chomped now on my ears, and I thought I was funny. Poor guys!

Glad their descendents do not hold a grudge and pose for such beautiful pictures.

This little fella looked like he was reading the Seven Dust bag in the last two shots.

I was excited to capture these two shots.  It is like they knew I was having a rotten day yesterday and so they posed for me.  Thanks little creatures, you make my day.

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.

Shoo Fly Don’t Bother Me

I remember when as a child swimming and one of these horse flies would come around, we would scream “Horse Fly”!  and everyone would splash and dive under the water.

One landed on the truck today and was able to get a picture close up.

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.
