The sun finally popped from behind the clouds and I couldn’t help myself…I stole a scarce moment to sniff Spring for a bit…and look at all that lushious beauty and life…it’s so beautiful…offering SO much inspiration…

Hello there, lady!Always in a couple!Another little fellar!Soooooo happy!Flower power!Nose to nose...
Didn't know what this was...Look at this shell of pearl...And so quietly it sat....I saw a butterfly......Peerke growingDangerously hanging over the pond...ready to strike
...but beautifulBeauty in all its simplicityIs this one related to the former?Is this one related to the next?Waited for this so long


Garden in Spring, a set on Flickr.

I spent a few minutes watching damselflies hunt. They are vicious! At one moment I spotted a butterfly and set my camera to shoot it. I wasn’t alone, however. And before I could shoot it for eternity, a damselfly caught it and bit its head off before I could blink. The butterfly got devoured ferociously right in front of my eyes. The damselfly was so busy eating that it didn’t even move when the lens of my camera accidentally touched it.That’s how close I could come!
A little while later I spotted two very still figures on some leaves sticking out of the pond. When I approached them, I noticed they were the emtpy shells of damselfly larvae. It resulted in a beautiful photo…eerie, but incredibly beautiful at the same time. Just imagine…bursting out of your own skin to grow. Humans only do that metaphorically…or should.
Among the damselflies was a fly, sparkling with greens and blues…the beauty of they backs highly contrasts with the annoyingness of their buzzing and tickling…let alone the though of the places they visit before landing on your plate… 
Oh, and notice that little puss of ours? She’s 15 years old now and warming her stiff body in the sun…rolling around as if she were still young. And see how brown her black fur turns in the sun? Two days and she’s down two tones…or three. 
Oh, and that blue, blue sky…how we have longed for it…and the fresh green leaves of the trees…it’s a feast to the eyes…
