J’ai seulement vu un papillon la première fois

J’ai seulement vu un papillon la première fois

When I saw this photo the first few times, I thought it was only one exquisitely beautiful papillon, but it’s two. Not sure why I didn’t see the second one for a while. She’s turned “on edge” so she seems one-dimensional. But there are two of them there. Working together. As butterflies should. Whatever that means!

Thinking today about how I often don’t “see” things accurately. About how it’s not unusual for me to need to take that second or third look. And about how flying solo is not necessarily the best way to go…

It’s my M.O. but not necessarily the best way to go.

I love to take pictures.

 

 

Still flying solo here in Central Florida, I am,

Exquisite Beauty is Hovering Around Moss Park Today

Exquisite Beauty is Hovering Around Moss Park Today

I’m in butterfly heaven right now. Some of these photos can almost make me cry. Much more editing to do, but I’m getting some of the ones I really like out now.

Are butterflies not some of God’s most amazing creations? (Don’t draw any conclusions about how I believe life came about on this planet, that’s just the way the thought came into my head. Kind of old school, I suppose!)

So much beauty out here. I’m trying to capture some of it. Very appropriate on the first full day of spring. What a fine time of year to do the stuff I’m doing right now!

Hope you’re doing well on this Tuesday. I hope you’re loving being out in nature when you get the chance…

Or not. Then I get it all to myself! Just kidding!

Get outside. You’ll be glad you did. And you’ll want to do more of it.

 

An awestruck, outside dog today, I am,

Another Shot or Two from Trimble Park.

There must be thirty or forty docks at the park. No, that’s not an exaggeration! A view of a dock or two. This huge lake is Lake Griffin.

Call Orange County Parks and Rec if you’d like to book or need info such as hours, fees, how to find them, and all that. If you like to do outdoor stuff and you’re here in Central Florida, don’t overlook this hidden gem.
