Sometimes you just need to refill your soul with something lovely. I've had so many butterflies in the yard...it has made me very happy to chase them with the camera. Because sometimes it is better to be behind the camera than in front.
A dragonfly that likes to follow me around the garden. He is so lovely but very hard to capture on film.
The passion vine is finally in bloom.
The caterpillars are back!
Last - a new face in the crowd. This beauty has taken to sitting on the fence and just surveying the perimeter as a sort of sentinel. He makes me feel protected. I love him.
Truthfully the world can be a beautiful and wonderful place you just have to be observant of your surroundings and of the people who love you.
