Distracted By Mother Nature

Ooh, Shiny! – Photo Challenge

I must admit…I become easily distracted by a little sparkle from a dew drop or the sun glistening off  the wings of a dragonfly.  My passion for the tiny critters in nature has become a bit of an obsession.  I find myself outside, with the intention of completing a specific task.  Before I know it, I am hyper focused, with the camera in hand, on a bumble, tree frog or grasshopper.  The 10 minute task of collecting eggs can become an hour photo shoot with dancing wildflowers or an ornate spider web.  I am surrounded by such beauty…I can’t help but want to capture each and every moment!

“We often forget that we are nature.  Nature is not something separate from us.  So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature,we have lost our connection to ourselves.” ~Andy Goldsworthy

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
