I’m still sharing images from our peaceful trip to the gardens near the mountains. Let’s just say that seeing these images brings all those feelings of wonder I held while sitting in the gardens, listening to the wind, the birdsong, my own thoughts. I often forget how meaningful moments like this are… and how few and far between they seem to be. Of course, since I love taking photographs, I am out there more often than most. However, I don’t think others are any less lacking in the connection to nature. Time just seems so quickly fleeting.
This little guy was seriously small. He could have sat in the palm of my hand and had extra room. Funny thing is that for some reason he was hot and wanted to find shade. He stood beneath my shadow to stay cool. It was rather hard getting a picture of him that way without bothering him. Can’t help but smile though to think of how cute it was.
