The hymn “In the Morning of Joy” came to mind when I was looking at this Morning Glory picture. This special flower closes every day mid-morning and does not re-open until the next. One day we will experience the morning of joy.
This morning Jack brought in a big basket of veggies from the garden. I was working away and he called me to see his creation! This is too hilarious! Lettuce, yellow peppers, jalapeno peppers, eggplant and an egg.
An amazing day to see several bears fishing and playing… but to see a cub nuzzling his (her) mother! Words can’t describe! I don’t have a super long lens and I was about 30 feet away in a boat. Everyone stops fishing when the bears come to the creek. The stop fishing rule is for safety, but just think about it…. When something this special and this big comes into your space you move over and give them room.
This was not “staged”… there is no way you could get this kind of expression… just put your camera on multi-shots and point. The fish did release itself… they were going to let it go anyway, but this fish was not taking any chances.
We have always planted the kind of flowers that attract butterflies. Zinnias are the best… you have to go out early in the morning and stand in the middle of the flowers and take lots of pictures. Somethings you just have to keep on keepin on!
