Take a Leap of Faith!

Mother Nature’s magic is always present, if we just take a moment to be still, observe and listen.  I happened to meet up with this fabulous critter, while working in the Italian broccoli patch.

At first, she was shy and not thrilled that I invaded her dinner time.  I would aim the lens in one direction and she would move her head in the other direction.  It became a bit of a hide and seek game.  Being the competitive soul that I am, I put on my hat of patience, for I was determined to photograph her!

This stunning grasshopper quickly realized that I was not going away and began to relax a bit.  Granted, she continued to eat the young broccoli leaves, never offering me a single bite!

“Oh…you’re still here…”
As I zoomed closer, I was drawn to the stunning detail of her body!  Based on her legs, it was a given that much of her time was spent in the gym!  What a powerhouse!!

After some time, I felt she was becoming restless.  I wanted her to be able to finish her meal, so I thanked her for her time and bid her farewell…

Until we meet again, my friend…
Mother Nature has so much to teach us.  This beautiful grasshopper reminded me of many valuable life lessons…  I was a giant in her eyes, yet, she appeared fearless.  She remained present, when she could have easily jumped away.  She encouraged me to always take a leap of faith and trust my intuition.

When you have an encounter with this beautiful green creature, take a moment to thank her for her lesson and reflect on her teachings…

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
